    • 10. What is a Wiki?
      • A wiki is a type of free on-line writing space that allows users to add, modify and update its pages.
      • If something is missing or incorrect in a wiki and permissions allow you to edit the wiki, you can easily add your thoughts or make changes to the wiki.
      • It is essentially a fully editable web site.
      http://www.teachinghacks.com/wiki/index.php?title=Wikis
    • 11. How is a Wiki Constructed?
      • A single page in a wiki is referred to as a "wiki page", while the entire body of pages, which are usually highly interconnected via hyperlinks, is “the wiki”
    • 12. Wiki Construction
    • 13. Philosophy of Wikis
      • The process is the product.
        • Meaning is developed and guided out of the social interactions at the point where text is created.
      • One of the most obvious benefits of using a wiki is the ability to offer a quick way to collaborate textually, while creating a content rich web site.
        • Where the knowledge of the group is greater than that of the individual, and the end product is the result of the group’s interactions.

    • 14. Philosophy of Wikis
      • Wikis are generally designed with the philosophy of making it easy to correct mistakes, rather than making it difficult to make them.

      • In what's been dubbed the "wiki workplace," a growing number of organizations have begun shifting from traditional hierarchical structures to self-organized and collaborative networks, using wiki software—a basket of technologies that include wikis, blogs and other tools—to foster innovation across organizational and geographic boundaries.

    • 19. What the Experts are Saying
      • The information and communication technologies that are transforming media, culture, and the economy are also reshaping how companies and employees function. New social computing tools such as wikis and blogs put unprecedented communication power in the hands of employees.

    • 24. Are Wikis Safe?
      • Thus while wikis are very open, they provide a means to verify the validity of recent additions to the body of pages.
        • The most prominent, on almost every wiki, is the "Recent Changes" page—a specific list numbering recent edits, or a list of all the edits made within a given timeframe.
