Ramit Sethi I love hearing about how others use PBwiki and how we can make it better. Co-founder, Pbwiki, ramit@pbwiki.com  


Harold Horne PBwiki seems to be the most user friendly, easy to understand wiki available today. With PBwiki you can create something useful with a minimal time investment, leaving to work on what you are actually working on, instead of playing with the wiki system all of the time. A useful tool. Information Systems Manager, United Indian Health Services, Inc    
Jackie Keller I love it for its ease of use and the powerful tool for collaboration. I am currently working with a group of teachers from all over our district and we are setting up a wiki to use for the entire school year so we can collaborate on technology integration best practices. We learn best when we teach others or see examples of successes. Library Information Specialist  

Sylvia Hernandez It is an easy way to get out information to teachers on the web without having to create a sophisticated website. It is quick and easy to make edits and a great tool to collaborate with colleagues. It's also great if you don't have access to your school's server space. Instructional Technology Specialist    
Lindsay Ure It is extremely user friendly, from the short videos explaining how it works, to the Point and Click Editor and the cool plugins. There is great support in the forums and the blog. Librarian    
Rachel Alley Because it's ridiculously easy to use, that if you know how to use MS Word, you're set. We use it all over our library for user group meetings, for news collection, for our unit and division meeting agendas. It's fabulous InterAction Data Steward    
Joyce Houle I appreciate PBwiki because one person no longer has to be the only person maintaining the web site. It's difficult for information to be updated often when everything needs to be channeled through one busy webmaster. More people use the site if it is dynamic and includes the work of all members. Instructor, Education Department of Blue Mountain Community College    
Robin Martin It is VERY easy to use. Teachers want quick and easy ways to post materials for their students. They want a web presence that can be edited from multiple computers(home, school, any computer at school). Thanks for making this simple. Instructor    
Justin Wylie I started using PBwiki at the start of my teaching methods courses in college and have been using them more and more, especially since I started student teaching. It's so easy to create a site to help guide students along with projects (I've created these for my German and English classes). I have also found that it's a good way to make handouts available to students who are absent or lost them without having to continually make extra copies for everyone - I can just point them at the web address. I post links to my PBwiki sites on Rockford's "homework on the web" site so that parents can access project guidelines as well. I've only hit the tip of the iceberg in terms of what I have tried with PBwiki, but I'm already very impressed, and I will definitely keep using it when I have a classroom of my own. Student Teacher, Rockford High School Freshman Center Rockford, Michigan  
Joel Solomon I started using PB Wiki a year ago, and have been hooked ever since. It's easy to use, and easy to teach others how to use, too, especially with the new Point-and-Click-Editor feature! Our district is pretty much using PB Wiki exclusively for online collaboration and discussions. The possibilities are endless for sharing, collaborating, and learning in the 21st century. Instructional Technology Coach Denver, Colorado

Jens Schroeter I love the approach of your product but still have some problems. Most irritating is that I can not copy&paste when beeing in point & click mode. So I have to switch to the "souce"-mode every time I insert texts. There's also room for improvement in the Portfolio section. Nearly no document appears in a way that I can use (most of tables run completely out of format), the .ppt's too can not be used for presentations. You'd better wait or mark these services as beta - otherwise you may raise expectations you can not fulfill. But anyway, I think it's a easy and fun way to play around with wikis Senior Training Consultant New York

I love using PBWiki because it's as easy at making a PB sandwich!! I even have my students with special needs working on their own wiki...

 

Look at our Wiki we used for our conference. We had presenters from all over the state of Michigan.  PBWiki was perfect to have all the presetners post their handouts.  Even if a participant missed a session, they could still get another presenter's handouts just by going to the Wiki.  Presenters loved being able to post info after the conference, so participants could be kept up to date without having to worry about sending email to people who might not be interested. 

 

Oh yeah, PBWiki's are comercial free for educators!  All I had to do was mention that info and everyone took note!

I love it because it is a prime example of how anything in life can be tailored to fit the needs of a wide range of users. It is easy enough for the lowest-end user to feel successful and yet has enough advanced options for the high-end user.
