What is a Wiki?


The term wiki means “quick” (in Hawai’ian) and thus refers to fast and easy creation or editing of web page. The wiki software was originally designed by Ward Cunningham in the mid 1990s as an online collaborative editing tool. Wikis provide any easy means for one or many authors to quickly create web content that any one can post, edit, update or reorganize. Additionally, authors who contribute to the wiki can utilize online discussion tools related to the web content within the wiki itself.
