    Wikis

    Apologies if this is in the wrong place.

    We want to set up an IT Department wiki and our ICT CO-Ordinator wants the kids to be able to upload pictures to a page without giving them access to edit the page.

    Is this possible, is anyone currently doing this and can recommend a product, we have tried with PBWiki but it doesn't seem to be able to do what we want.

    We don't mind paying for a solution, for example PBWiki is £60/year (approx).

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    We use Wiki - Free Website - Wetpaint for our ICT wiki. It's free but I'm not sure how someone could upload a picture to it withouit being able to edit it!

    This isn't really how a wiki works!

    You might be better off with a script that displays the images in a folder (sure there are loads around or pretty easy to do in any number of scripting languages). Then just give the students access to the folder?

    Can your VLE not support a wiki? As an example, I am going to be using the wiki function of sharepoint...

    for pictures, gallery2 Gallery | Your photos on your website
    we have a mediawiki installation where techs post fixes.
    MediaWiki - MediaWiki

    moodle does all this too, but more from a teachers perspective:
    Moodle - A Free, Open Source Course Management System for Online Learning

    another option is to setup joomla/drupal so every student has an eportfolio/website

    We have a copy of MediaWiki running that authenticates against an LDAP server, so pupils can use the same logins for Windows/Moodle/Wiki.
