"We use DeskNow in our division. Each student from K-12 has an email address. Many have not activated them. My grade four and fives activated them for the first time this year. I think this is a useful service for divisions to offer. It is monitored.…"

"On PBWorks, you can make student accounts in your wikis (and they are ad-free). I believe there is a way to do that in Wikispaces, too. If you let them know you're an educator, they'll give you a Plus account that is free from…"

"A good alternative for a wiki resource that 'creates' virtual addresses for students is PBWorks.com. Earlier on (April 09), my wiki had been shared with students in this way - a tool in the Settings area that creates as many logons and…"

"Thanks, Daniel. I had heard you could do this but didn't know how. It appears that you need to insert one name at a time into the box. How do you upload the list? Also, do I create the passwords for the kids or will the program do that for me?"

"Wikispaces has an excellent user creator. You can upload a spreadsheet or text list of student names and requested usernames. It will create them all at once and link them to your wiki for you. Very handy!"

"Thanks Al and Kev. Both of you have been very helpful. I'm going to try a combination of the ideas to finish my project this time and you've both given me lots to think about for next time."

"Re-encode the files as mp3s, that will cut the file size down immensely. Also, this probably won't help but if you use wikispaces it is very easy to embed sound files so they stream and don't have to be downloaded."

Posting audio for students

Hi!I'm looking for a simple way to post audio files for students. Many of my students are on dial up connections at home and can't get the files that I inserted into Dreamweaver pages on a page on my class blog ( http://mswift.edublogs.org/student-work/ ). At my school they play nicely. At the kids' homes, they're getting messages that they have to download the file, which takes a LONG time on dial up. I was thinking I could use Gcast or…See More

"wikispaces works fine. You can put in anything for the email addy on sign up and it doesn't matter. It says you need to click on a confirmation link in the email but you don't. The account works just fine without clicking anything at all."

Best Wiki tool for users without email addresses

I'm guessing this has been discussed before, but I couldn't find the answer. Which wiki tool should I use if my students don't have individual email addresses? I want to have individual logins for them so I can keep track of their contributions. (They're only in Grade 3) Ideally I would like to use wetpaint because I can get the version with no ads for educators.
