WHAT IS A WIKI?

A wiki is a collaborative website that is considered part of the second generation of Internet-based services that allows users to instantly create and share web pages.

Definition of Wiki from Wikipedia

 

Wikis in Plain English

 

Wikis are a place to:

  • add, edit and share quickly
  • build a community
  • collaborate
  • create picture galleries
  • manage a project or team
  • plan an event
  • share stories
  • store documents and files

 

In a time when everyone is talking about globalization, wikis are geographically agnostic.

 

Wikis are a place for:

adapting a document for a new audience brainstorming chronicle an ongoing event class practice tests
class-produced exam study guide classroom learning beyond the classroom classroom websites club activities
collaboration of notes collective note-taking computer program coding concept introduction
content presentation discussion questions exploratory projects experiments
favorite booklists frequently asked questions group collaboration on writing sentences group presentation
group problem-solving help-desk training lessons summaries individual assessment projects
