How I Use It
This product has been great for working on research together. Schools across the globe can access this easily and pages can be created for each team. The Wiki Wars are a problem - when more than one user edits the same page at the same time. Students need to learn how to not allow this to happen.
My Take
This is a great tool for teachers and students to use to create a personal e-portfolio. I liked the flexibility and personalization of creating wikis. The RSS feeds to see students' updates is a great feature. The one problem that I have had is with so many updates, it is hard to create how-to videos when it is changing so often.
