To get to User Management, Manage Your Wiki and then click on User Creator

For the past three years, we have offered a service to educators where we create accounts in bulk for your students. It has been a pleasure to meet many of you as we helped you get started with your classroom wikis. You’ll find that the process to create your student accounts has become even easier – within a few minutes, you can set up your classroom accounts on your own.

If your wiki is on our K-12 plan, go to “Manage Wiki” and then “User Creator” to create the accounts. As always, your students don’t need e-mail addresses to enjoy Wikispaces.

For more information, take a look at our blog post:

What a thrill, has made it easy to add student accounts–without email addresses–to your wiki. As far as I can tell, this is a FREE service. Kudos to Wikispaces folks for their wonderful work!! From their blog entry linked above, here are some of the benefits:

  • create accounts with or without e-mail addresses
  • have passwords generated for you
  • add a suffix or prefix to all the usernames to ease creation
  • and make them members of multiple wikis straight away

You can mass upload users via CSV (comma-delimited which is a standard export from databases, spreadsheets and student information systems), Excel spreadsheet (XLS) or paste the information in.
