Rob Barth, an attendee of some of the sessions I did at METC over the past couple of days, shared a web site that enables us to compare various wiki tools. The site, WikiMatrix, lists dozens of wiki farms and wiki engines, from which you select the ones you want to compare. Both PBWiki and Wikispaces are included, as is WetPaint — three tools that I hear mentioned in education circles quite frequently.
This could be quite useful, as I’m sure we all get questions about which wiki to use with my class. The only potential down side with this site, is that it provides a lot of information, too much for some.
