Class Projects Explained

Wikispaces offers a way to collaborate on a project online. It's called "Projects," and it's an easy way for teachers to create groups, called teams, for working on an assignment together online and documenting their work to share.

Wikispaces describes it this way:
"Whenever you have a particular assignment or activity, you can create a project for it, then define teams of members, each with its own unique pages, files, and permissions. Team content (that is, pages and files) are grouped together, separate from the main area of the wiki. That way, students in teams can do their group work completely independently from other teams."

Setting Up a Project

As explained by Wikispaces Help, "Each Project on your wiki is made up of a unique set of teams of members, pages, files, and settings. There’s no limit to the number of teams within a Project, or to the number of pages within a team, but here are a few things to keep in mind as you get started:
  • Only members of the wiki can be members of a team on that wiki.
  • Every team should have at least one member.
  • Every team starts out with one page, called "home." You and your members can create more pages as the teamwork continues.
  • An individual user can only be a member of one team, maximum, within any given Project (although not all wiki members must be assigned to a team for every project on your wiki)."
