Getting real about Wikis

We’re about to begin looking in some detail at getting a wiki platform going in our school and the discussion’s moving from the theory to the practical questions like the one below. Any feedback would be welcome.

  • Should wikis be viewable outside the school intranet?
  • Is it best to have the wiki software on the school’s server?
  • What is the best wiki software?
  • Should they be editable outside the school intranet?
  • What kind of security and password control is needed?
  • What are the features that are most important in the wiki software?
  • How important is RSS of wiki changes?
  • Is WYSIWYG editing important?
  • How much disk space should a wiki be allocated?
  • Should staff be able to establish multiple wikis?
  • Should students be able to establish a wiki without teacher input?
  • Should students be able to establish multiple wikis?
  • How important is template support in wiki design?
  • How much customization is necessary/advisable?
