We are very happy with Confluence at UCLA. It supports the wiki
metaphor of a pool of labeled/tagged documents with a hierarchical
directory-like structure, so you don't have to choose between the two
models. Although I usually edit pages in the wiki markup view, many of
our users prefer the very friendly gui.
Academic pricing is 50% of the regular license for a local version. If
you want to avoid the effort of administering your own server, you can
sign up for Altassian's hosted service called On-Demand, although I'm
not sure if the discount applies.
