The folks at Common Craft have been creating videos for businesses. Their latest is for Wetpaint wikis, a site I’ve been exploring for our courses as a potential alternative for Wikispaces. This video is less about the technology and more about why someone would create a wiki: to share something they’re passionate about. Although it isn’t directly related to education, I think there is still some value in having people view this video to “get” the concept. Wetpaint was very easy to set up, and they do have templates for class wikis that could be useful in some situations.
One gem from the video: They compared a wiki to a potluck, where everyone brings something special to the table.
