Wiki is a Hawaiian word that means “fast” or“quick.”A wiki web site is an easy-to-create and easy-to-use
web site that allows many people to add,modify, or edit content. The largest wiki in the world is Wikipedia. In this
hands-on session you’ll work with an existing classroom wiki to experience how wiki technology helps support and
teach any class. You’ll join the wiki as a student, create and edit wiki pages, share files, and post and respond to wiki
discussion groups.
