What is PBworks?

The wiki that you are viewing is a PBworks wiki!

PBworks (formerly PBwiki) is a free hosted wiki solution that was started in 2005.  At the time, most wikis were complex, so PBwiki focused on being simpler and easier-to-use than software wikis.  Users can create free basic wikis, or upgrade to a premium wiki to access additional features.  Over 1,00,000 wikis have been created using PBworks.

**These videos refer to PBworks as PBwiki.  Since PBwiki changed its name to PBworks just a few months ago, the tutorials still refer to PBwiki.  Please substitute Pbworks for Pbwiki.  The instructions are still the same and the tutorials apply to Pbworks.  The only thing that has changed is the name.
