What is a Wikispace?
A Wikispace, in simple terms, is a group of web pages with “edit” buttons on them. You can collaborate with anyone you choose on your wikispace. You may want a place to keep information about your organization, or to easily manage your team's schedules. Wikispaces is simple enough for anyone to use, but has enough sophistication so that you can be creative and get things done.
If you are looking for more about what a wiki is, Common Craft has a simple and clear explanation. Take a look at their video.

  • As a business, you can use Wikispaces to organize schedules or projects, build an Intranet, or create a forum to interact with your customers.
