Blogging, Web Page, Wiki The lines between blogging platforms, website platforms, and wiki platforms are not always clear. A somewhat simplistic explanation to teachers who don't have a web presence yet, but want to create one for their professional work. Here's the explanation: websites are good for providing a static resource of information, blogs are good for frequent updates and communication, and a wiki is great for collaborating on the creation of a reference site.
