A wiki is a hosted website that specified users can easily access and modify ("Wiki," 2017). Wikis are features of "Web 2.0," in which users are directly involved with creating contenting and building social networks.

The term Wikispaces refers to this particular hosting service, although there are many services that host wikis. (I thought Wikispaces and Wikipedia were related; they are both wikis, but they do not belong to the same host.)

Wikispaces was founded in 2005 and continues to host free wikis for K-12 students and teachers. Wikis for other industries are available for a fee ("About," 2015).
