Wikis

A wiki is a collection of collaboratively authored web documents. Basically, a wiki page is a web page everyone can create together, right in the browser, without needing to know HTML. A wiki starts with one front page. Each author can add other pages to the wiki by simply creating a link to a page that doesn't exist yet.

Wikis can be used for:

  • group lecture notes
  • group project management
  • brainstorming
  • contribute to other wikis
  • collaborative story-telling
