Easy Wiki Tool

I love the ability to drag and drop boxes, which is why Intodit.com is the Picture 10fastest and easiest tool to use to create a free wiki! It took me five minutes to sign-up, choose a template, and start dragging and dropping pictures, movies, widgets, and music. The space wiki shown displays the type of quality which can be achieved.

When Zoho first came out, several educators debated which was a better servicePicture 12 Zoho documents or Google Docs.
