Sorry for being slow too.
I tried the free wikispace without ads and I think it's ok. Well, it
didn't need to be so private and secure, it even has a URL "https".
Wikispaces is easy to edit and manage, the only 2 aspects I don't like
so much are, first, you can't edit or delete what you (or the students) post
under "discussion" (at least I couldn't find out how to do it) , second,
some of the students were never able to become members ( perhaps they
chose the wrong option and declined the invitation instead of accepting
it) but they are still pending and can't solve the situation.
One of these days I'll try http://www.protopage.com/v2

There is also an integration somehow with blogger and it is easy to make a hyperstructure by creating subpages. Even better and easier than the PBwiki IMHO
