I thought that your presentation was very well thought out and helpful.  I could see using this explaniation in a class using wikispace.  I might even use it as a base when I create my classroom wiki to use with my students.  I also like that you had the navigational options so that students could go over the information and slides again.  I liked that you included your voice in the presenatation as well, explaining the steps in the process.  I also liked the different arrows you used to draw your students' attention to different aspect of the page.


One thing that I thought you could add to the presentation is maybe a screencast of adding information to the wiki or how to upload the files to the wiki.  I think this will change things up a little bit and keep the students involved in the presentation.  I also had some technical problems (see below).

Technical Remarks:

I had trouble opening up the links and documents in the presentation. The only one I could open was the Chichago citation link.  The others can up with an error message.  It may be because you used a Mac and I'm using Windows.  I also noticed that if the default e-mail was not set up on the computer, the link to e-mail you didn't work either.  You may want to include that on the slide in case that happens to one of the students.
