I'm debating whether or not to have students create an entry for wikipedia or simply create a group wiki on a subject of their choice in Writing for the Web. Last night, I downloaded xwiki. What attracted me to xwiki was the cost (free) and the fact that they'll host the site.

I still need to work with it, and I'm fairly confident that I can. However, at a first glance, I'm tempted to reject it because it isn't as user friendly as I would like it to be for beginning students. I'd love to hear what others think about xwiki or any other free wiki software available out there. What attracted me to xwiki was the cost (free) and the fact that they'll host the site.

As an anonymous friend pointed out, wikis are really the future for communication, and I like the idea of collaborative writing anyway.
