Wiki-Getting Started Document created by Patrick Higgins
Make sure you use the teacher wikispaces, that way, your site will not have ads.
To get started, each student needs a valid email address to receive an "invitation." Once they receive the invite, the email address is no longer needed.

When choosing user names, for safety reasons do not let students use their first and last name. A combo works better so that you can identify them.
Example: John Smith could be jmith or smithj

Settings under "My Account"
Make sure you are in the right time zone.
Uncheck email notification if you do not want to receive an email every time someone makes an edit or posts a question.

For school districts where students are less likely to have email addresses, Jotit, is a good alternative to wiki that is kept private and secure.
