Wikis in education

Is there an easy-to-configure wiki engine/software package that is suited for education?
The instructional technology coordinator at my college, knowing about my Wikipedia experience, approached me with an idea for using Wikis in education.
For example, professors being able to post content, and students being able to edit/annotate said content. The trouble is, there really isn't anybody with the technical expertise or time to configure a database backend like MySQL, so we're looking for a solution that is quick to configure without any kind of sophisticated database engine. Possibly some kind of flat file or MS Access solution that could just be dropped onto a web server's htdocs folder with minimal configuration and installation. Any suggestions?
