Workshops

If you ever get a chance to take a workshop on Blogs, Podcasts, or Wikis-do it! Our local GST Boces is offering classes on these topics. Here are some notes:

---Wikis---

You can create new pages
You can edit other people's pages, unless someone else is editing
Not all wikis have to be logged into, not all are free. If you want a closed wiki, you have to pay.
Wikis allow you to edit (and others).
What I Know Is....(wiki)
Collaborative space
Good place for peer editing
You information can be changed by others....
