Pre-2013 comments

“an easy way to get a web/wiki site up and running” Stephanie Horden

“This wiki based service provides the capacity to develop online-learning communities in ways that I feel surpass any of the efforts that many have been making to put the power of community/collaboration in peoples hands.  (ex. Microsoft has likely spent a great deal of time and money to enable the Innovative Teacher Network… yet it falls far short of the quality or potential of Google Sites.)”  Mark Arnold
