This is the home page of Demo Wiki.

A wiki is a collaborative website which can be directly edited using only a web browser, often by anyone with access to it. (http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/wiki)

A wiki is a website that allows the easy creation and editing of any number of interlinked web pages via a web browser using a simplified markup language or a WYSIWYG text editor. Wikis are typically powered by wiki software and are often used to create collaborative wiki websites, to power community websites, for personal note taking, in corporate intranets, and in knowledge management systems.

Wikis may exist to serve a specific purpose, and in such cases, users use their editorial rights to remove material that is considered "off topic." Such is the case of the collaborative encyclopedia Wikipedia. In contrast, open purpose wikis accept content without firm rules as to how the content should be organized.

Demo Wiki

This is a demonstration of a UTAS Wiki. It shows you what a UTAS Wiki looks like, and how you can use it within UTAS.

What's happening in Demo Wiki...

We are now in the middle of creating a wiki for presentation purposes. When this task is completed you will  be given the opportunity to see exactly what a UTAS Wiki is and how it is used. You can then decide if it would suit your purposes.
