Welcome to the Drake University - Cowles Library Wikispaces: a dedicated wiki environment

Wikis are easy to create websites and collaborative spaces where you, your students, and your colleagues can share information. Our university now has our own Wikispaces site where you can create as many wikis as you like and create and manage student accounts.

Making a Wiki

Ready to get started? Click "Make a New Wiki" in the top right, and you'll instantly have a wiki under our school's domain. Here are a few ideas of popular education wikis you can create:

  • Course Website: Put your course calendar, information, assignments, and resources all in one place for students.
  • Project Website: Want students to create a quick website about a topic? Make a wiki, put the rubric up, and have each student make a page with their assignment.
    • Great for:
      • Publishing student work and grading student work
      • Student-led discussions
      • Student collaborations and groupwork

  • ePortfolios: Empower students to create a place to house all of their classroom artifacts to share with others.
  • Committee Workpages: Great place to keep minutes, agendas, proposals, and more for university committees and departments.

Transferring a Wiki

Do you already have a wiki at www.wikispaces.com and want it under our school's domain with the ability to quickly create/manage your students' accounts? Contact marc.davis@drake.edu and help@wikispaces.com with the current address of the wiki you would like to migrate and we'll handle the rest!
