Why would you want to use a wiki?

Wikis may be used, for example, for:

  • structures of articles on subjects à la Wikipedia
  • collaborative work (e.g. in teaching and learning)
  • for research groups
  • for committees
  • for projects
  • sharing technical notes in a small group
  • managing projects

How do I add a new page?

  • This presumes that the part of the wiki ("space") the page is to be added to exists, if it doesn't, see Creating a space below.
  • You must have sufficient permission to be able to edit a wiki to add a page. If you can see the Edit tab on a wiki page you can add a new page to that wiki.
  • The procedure is the same whatever kind of space it is (i.e. personal or global).
