How to Create Wikis
Congratulations on selecting a wiki! Now that you have done a little research and participated in the quiz, you have determined that a wiki is what you need to meet your educational needs.
As mentioned before, wikis are web pages that are generally simple in design and hyperlinked together in which groups, friends, and families can edit together. Editing of the wiki pages can be done via the browser, with a version history for each page. There are many different types of wiki software and programs that can be utilized to create wikis. These are not the only definitions to define wikis, but the ones that will be used throughout this instructional program. This instructional program will focus on two wiki software programs including Wikispaces and Wikidot.
