- example of an educational wiki that is all about collaboration and spreading knowledge: http://the-moon.wikispaces.com . With over 2,000 pages it has become an amazing reference wiki!
- Our Space: The-Moon Wiki is a repository for scientific and historic information about the Moon and the people who study it. We want the wiki to be THE place to find out about every named lunar landform. Each piece of data is signed or has a reference listed so users can evaluate the quality of the information.
- Our Community: There are three main (=obsessed) contributors including Chuck Wood, a lunar scientist, Mark Tillotson, an engineer and amateur astronomer who has fallen in love with the Moon, and Jim Mosher, a retired physicist. Each has contributed knowledge, hard work and skills, allowing us to create 2055 pages in less than 2 months. Amateur astronomers and professional lunar scientists use and contribute to The-Moon.
- Our Experience with Wikispaces: Wikispaces is a very easy to use tool. We created computer programs to harvest information from sources across the Internet, and then used the Wikispaces template feature to create pages. We did have to add each page by hand, and also hundreds of images - how we wish there were bulk uploads and global editing (for use as we discover new data sources)! Wood has two other Wikispaces sites (including a private one for study of Titan data from the Cassini spacecraft) and will use a new Wikispaces site as a classroom for an online course this fall on education about the Moon.
