Have you ever wondered, "What exactly is a wiki?" Simply put, a wiki is "a web page with an edit button" as one wiki user characterized it. More specifically, it is a collaborative website that allows multiple users to contribute to and edit its pages. Users can add content, upload documents & other instructional resources, showcase student work, and collaborate via the discussion board. Just check out the Wikispaces blog for proof of its popularity!
