What Are Wikis & Why Use One?


Wikis allow for much more efficient communication and collaboration on a wide variety of projects. Rather than using email to develop or share materials, plan meetings & activities, share meeting agendas/notes, and/or share resources & research, we can do all of it in this wiki saving time and email server space. The following graphic and video provide a clear explanation of why wikis work and how to use them:
