What

is

a

wiki?

Wikis

provide

a

simple,

intuitive

way

of

creating

group-authored

webpages,

such

as

Wikipedia-style

repositories

of

knowledge.


They

are

useful

for

collaborative

projects

and

make

it

easy

to

share

information.


You

can

view

changes

made

by

different

users

or

rollback

to

previous

versions.

The

UCL

Wiki

is

not

just

one

wiki

-

the

Confluence

software

has

the

capability

of

creating

many

"wiki

spaces"

for

groups

of

UCL

users.


Additionally,

both staff

and student users

have

the

ability

to

maintain

set up their

own

"personal

wiki

space"
