11 Getting Started Before you start your wiki with your class(es), make some basic decisions: How do you envision using the wiki? ( How will you explain it to parents and administration? Who will be able to see the wiki? (the public? members only?) Who will be able to edit the wiki? (the public? members only? vary by section?) Who will be able to join the wiki? (students only? parents? invited guests? the public?) What parts of the wiki will you “protect” (lock from changes)? Who will moderate the wiki for appropriateness, etc? Who will have the ability to reset changes? Will you, as the teacher, be notified of all changes? Will the wiki have Individual or global memberships? (by individual students if you want an individual record of who made changes, or with one log-in per group or class?) ~http://www2.teachersfirst.com/content/wiki/wikistep1.cfm
