What in the world is a Wiki?

Why should I create a Wiki for my class?

  • it's free to educational users
  • anyone can edit information
  • it is easy to use and learn
  • wikis are instantaneous so there is no need to wait for a publisher to create a new edition or update information
  • people located in different parts of the world can work on the same document
  • the wiki software keeps track of every edit made and it's a simple process to revert back to a previous version of an article
  • widens access to the power of web publishing to non-technical users
  • it is a flexible tool which can be used for a wide range of applications
