What is a Wiki and Why Should I Use One

A wiki is software that allows registered users or anyone to collaboratively create, edit, link, and organize the content of a website, usually for reference material. Wikis are often used to create collaborative websites and to power community websites. From Wikipedia, of the worlds largest wikis. [Accessed 20 July, 2009] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wiki
Wikis provide a simple but effective space for content creation and collaboration and can be used in a wide variety of educational settings. Watch this great video on Wikis in plain English video by commoncraft
