Wikis - Overview

A wiki is simply a web page or site that is fully editable from a browser using a very simple "mark-up" language. Its strength is that it allows small groups to add, revise, and edit web content, so it is a natural tool for most collaborative writing activities. Like a web site, it allows for non-linear linking of individual wiki pages. Whenever a wiki page is edited, a new version of the page is created with the old version being archived for site editors' reference.

To set up a wiki right away, read the Quickstart page.
