Wikispaces was a wiki hosting service based in San Francisco, California. Launched by Tangient LLC in March 2005, Wikispaces was purchased by Tes Global (formerly TSL Education) in March 2014. It competed with PBworks, Wetpaint, Wikia, and Google Sites (formerly JotSpot). It was among the largest wiki hosts.
In September 2014, Tes announced that free hosting of non-educational wikis would cease. These wikis faced a 14 November 2014 shutdown deadline. Only wikis used exclusively in K–12 or higher education remain free.
Since 2010 Wikispaces have cooperated with web 2.0 education platform Glogster EDU. Glogster EDU embeds Glogs into Wikispaces services.
Due to cost issues, classroom and free-level Wikispaces closed on July 31, 2018, while private Wikispaces closed on January 31, 2019.
