5. Wikispaces (Wiki)
If you're looking for an easy-to-use collaborative workspace, consider Wikispaces. Wikispaces offers free and low-cost plans for individuals and small groups as well as private label plans for its larger customers, such as IBM, Xerox, and Columbia University. A wiki, named after the Hawaiian word for fast, enables you to quickly and easily collaborate in a common workspace. You can upload documents, images, videos, and audio files; add pages; discuss topics with your colleagues; and track your revisions so that you know who did what when. If you want to create a public wiki and don't mind some ads, you can get a basic wiki with up to 2 GB file storage at no cost. If you want a private wiki with extra security, no ads, and custom themes, you'll pay a reasonable $5 per month. For $20 per month, you can get up to 5 GB storage and a custom domain. Large organizations will want the power and flexibility of Wikispaces Private Label's unlimited storage, starting at $1,000 per year for 100 users.
