                                                                                                                             Unlike a whiteboard, however, a wiki will store a

                                                                                                                             A wiki website is build up of interlinked wiki
                                                                Getting started: Wikipedia                                   pages. It is easy to create new pages.

            Probably the best known example of a wiki is                                                                     Wiki pages are usually created in plain text with
            Wikipedia – a collaborative encyclopedia covering                                                                special ‘markup’ to indicate links and
            a wealth of topics.                                                                                              formatting.
            1. Visit www.wikipedia.com in your language and
               use the search feature to find an article of                                                                   You can get your own free
               interest to you.                                                                                               wiki from wikispaces.com or
            2. If you think you can add something to this page                                                                pbwiki.com. Just sign up
               (perhaps just by suggesting a new reference or                                                                 and start using it.
               tidying up the information that is already there)
               then click the ‘edit this page’ link at the top                                                                You might use a wiki to
               of the screen. (If you don’t think you can add                                                                 share information, to draft
               anything, find another article.)                                                                               a document, to organize
                                                                                                                              an event or to collaborate
                                                                                                                              with team members across
            3. Update the page text taking care to keep the                                                                   the world.
               special wiki markup intact. To make a word into
               a link to another Wikipedia entry, place the
               word in [[double square brackets]].
            4. You can view a preview of your changes, and
               when you are happy with them, save the
               page.
            5. The changes you have made are instantly
               available for the benefit of other wikipedia
               users.
            6. You can see the changes other have made
               (and revert the page to an older version) using
               the ‘history’ link at the top of the page.                                                                      Wiki markup makes it easy to create formatted pages

                                                                      This work is licenced under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 2.0 UK: England & Wales License. To view a copy of this
