What is a Wiki?

Basically, a "wiki", or "wikiwiki", or "WikiWikiWeb" as the original was known, is a web site whose pages can be edited by anyone (or, depending on the individual wiki, anyone with a valid login). It is also designed so that links can easily be created between pages within itself.

This means that a wiki user can:

  • Move between pages on related subjects quickly.
  • Suggest new areas of interest and potential development simply by turning a key word, set of words or name into a link to a page that has not been created yet.
  • Correct spelling mistakes or correct/leave notes regarding any factual or other errors.
  • Discuss the site content with the authors on the site.

So a wiki, by its nature, implies a sense of communal development, of continuing improvement that everyone involved contributes to.
