What is a Wiki?

A wiki is a collaborative authoring tool that allows you to contribute and modify one or more pages of course related materials. A wiki provides an area where users can collaborate on content. Users within a course can create and edit wiki pages that pertain to the course or a course group. For more information, see Wikis.

Creating a Wiki Page

With a wiki you can create a wiki page, edit any user's page, link to an existing wiki page in another page, and view the wiki history.
