  • HCI Wikispaces

  • Web-based service which enables online collaboration of web pages in which each user can edit and save changes to web page content using a web browser.

    Serves as a powerful tool for facilitating mass collaborative authoring.

  • Current Situation

    Individual groups or teachers having already started using wikis for their teaching and learning

    Owners of these wikis will need to add in their own members and log in different wikis in order to access them.

  • Why We Should Consider Wiki Private Label?

    The school will have its own registered private domain and all wikis associated with HCI will be housed within.

    Users of the private label will only need to do a single sign-in and they will be able to access all their wikis.

    Wikispace private label has enhanced features such as unlimited storage, unlimited wikis and security & privacy.

  • An email from wikispaces has been sent to your hci email account, requesting for your confirmation of the email address. This step is necessary to allow you to receive email invitation to join any wikis created by colleagues or even students.

  • Copy and paste the relevant emails in the space provided.

    The next time the student logs into their account or checks their e-mail they will be able to view and accept the invitation.

    Once the invitation is accepted they will become a member of your wiki.

    Please note that you can only send 100 invitations every 24 hours.

    Students will be able to find your wiki under the tab My Wikis.

  • Students would need to seek permission from the relevant teacher-in-charge before creating any new wikis. All wikis created must be for official purposes.

    Please ensure that you know the purpose of your students requests before approving them create new wikis.

    For e.g.- SLproject (permission from teacher mentor)- PW project (permission from PW ST)- e-portfolio (permission from CT)
