Since early 2005 we've been dedicated to building the world's easiest to use wiki service by listening closely to the ever growing Wikispaces community. We now host millions of wikis for over five million people and have products designed for the smallest classroom and the world's largest corporations and institutions.
Which Product is for You?
Before you get started, take a minute to decide which Wikispaces product will give you what you need:
Wikispaces Private Label
If you are a large organization (like a school or district, a university, or a company), you need an exclusive environment with unlimited wikis. Wikispaces Private Label offers all of the same easy-to-use tools with additional advanced settings and central administration. Private Label sites start at $1000/year.
If you, your project, or your small group are looking for a place to collaborate, you can sign up for a single wiki on wikispaces.com. You can get started right away with a free Basic wiki — or upgrade for extra features, starting at $50/year.
Our K-12 Plan
If your wiki will be used exclusively for primary and secondary education, you probably came here looking for a wiki on our K-12 plan. These wikis are free and ad-free, and you can make them private for extra security for your students. K-12 wikis also come with a User Creator tool that lets you open student accounts in bulk — without student email addresses.
Our Higher Education Plan
If your wiki will be used exclusively in higher education, you're eligible for one of our Higher Education plan wikis. On this complimentary plan, you'll get a free wiki with more complete privacy settings, our User Creator tool to create student accounts in bulk, and other great features. Get your free Higher Education plan wiki.

This tool was very helpful to me and allowing others to come in a find and fix mistakes I missed before helped a lot. It is very easy to use and sign up as well.
I am a high school senior and used wikispaces for a research project. Wikispaces is a very useful website for school projects. I love how you don’t have to get together with your partners for wikispaces, rather you could just get on the website from wherever and add to the project. This is a great tool because you can personalize a wiki page instead of having the same old boring site like on wikipedia. In regards to using wikisapces to study, that would not be a good idea because you don’t know where the creator of the website got their information.
I have used Wikispaces in the past to create student projects/pages. My students found the registration process was a little difficult, but one they were registered, it was pretty easy to use. It can be kept private, but any student who has permission to view/add to the page can edit and access the management tools. I have sinced moved away from Wikispaces and utlize Edmodo and Google Sites now for student webpages and projects.
Wikispaces is a useful tool for learning. I've used this tool for my students to create and collaborate for different projects. I will limit it to students whom I want to edit its contents, as I don't want just anyone to tamper with whatever I've written. It is very easy to use and understand. There is also room for creative design if you want to make it look pretty. The basic wiki doesn't cost too much so I would recommend it to someone who really needs it.
Wikispaces is an online tool that you set up to create collaboration within your class about any subject. It is very user friendly, offers a lot of tools to design your space, and has the capability to add more pages. You may allow your students to edit or add new content to your Wikispace, or you can lock users out from making changes. Teachers have control over whether or not they want to make their Wikispace private, therefore locking out public viewing. The only drawback that I can find is that any user given permission to make changes to the Wikispace can access the management tool, not just the wiki organizer. This could be a potential problem.
I use Wikispaces for all of my online exercises and resources, so students can reference them whenever they would like. Not all of my students have Internet access, so this is of limited value. Self-motivated students have told me this is helpful.
I also use Wikispaces for organizing my department's resources. This helps us manage all of the websites we have found useful. Since anyone can edit our wikispace, other teachers have contributed as well.
Wikispaces is a solid wiki tool with no advertising which makes it perfect for educational use.
