h1. 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 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, staff users have the ability to maintain their own "personal wiki space". For more information please refer to the Wiki Service Definition and to the wiki documentation: About the UCL Wiki
