A wiki allows a group of people to create content on a distinct topic. It is different from a blog, because there is no distinct author, and can be edited in real time by many collaborators. Faculty often assign wikis to groups of students to define, collect, or create information and materials, and share the results with the class.
Below are some helpful websites on wikis:
- How to use wikis Dartmouth Research Guide
