I want to create my own wiki, which basic steps should I follow?
1. Introduction: create your own wikispace and wikispace account. (Educational wikis are ad-free!)
2. Personalize your space: themes and colour. You can also include and image.
3. The title of your main page is "home". To add and edit new pages, click "New page" and then click the "Edit this page"
