Week 5: Wikis

This week’s lesson focuses on wikis.  A wiki is basically a website that anyone can edit, although some wikis are password protected to limit viewing and/or editing to only those with a password.  They are used as collaborative, sharing tools.

 If you have any questions, please contact Vicky or Sue S.

Very Cool-Google Satellite Maps

   

You know I couldn’t leave without out sharing one more web2.0 site with you. I had to share these two photos. They are from google satellite maps.  Go to   Parc du Champde Mars  Paris and move towards the Seine, then zoom in!  Way cool!

 Or even better go to the Empire State Building and try street view.

see you thursday.
