IT hosts and supports Wikimedia for use by UM departments and organizations.
A Wiki is a collaborative web content creation and editing tool. Wikis enable users to do more than simply read web content. Wikis provide a means for users to create new content and edit existing content.
The most famous wiki is Wikipedia, an online encyclopedia that contains more than 10 million articles written and edited in multiple languages by volunteers from around the world.
Wikis are useful any time you are trying to organize information between groups of people. They are ideal for planning, documentation and group projects.
