OK, OK…so this has NOTHING to do with SL….well, actually it could if you set up a wiki for the presentations you’ll be doing in Second Life after attending Beth’s and JuliaAnn’s workshop on Wednesday!
I was doing some work on a presentation for an upcoming NYSCATE conference in March. I was gathering my resources in my wikispaces.com account. After I created a new space I realized that I SHOULD HAVE requested an ad-free space that’s available for K-12 educators. In a panic, I e-mailed the ‘help’ e-mail address explaining my problem and listing the wikispaces that I would like to be ad-free. I clicked on the ‘send’ button and LITERALLY in less than 0 minutes (I know this because my g-mail account gave me the response time) I had an answer. At first I thought it was an automated response based on some advanced word recognition of my e-mail, but NO!!! It’s an ACTUAL PERSON!!! His name is Adam and he solved me problem IMMEDIATELY!!!
So if you haven’t yet done so, do yourself a favor and go over to wikispaces.com, create a space and then request that your space be ad-free simply by doing the following (per Adam’s e-mail):
“To request a free upgrade to our Plus plan for K-12 education do the following:
1) Go to your space
2) Click “Manage Space”
3) Click “Subscription”
4) At the bottom of the page, under “Request a complimentary upgrade to Plus for K-12 education” click “Request yours now”
I think there should be an awards ceremony for ‘The MOST Helpful Tech Support People’ and I would like to be the first to nominate Adam from wikispaces.com
