What is a Wiki?


Definitions of Wiki on the Web:


1) A website or similar online resource which allows users to add and edit content collectively. www.parliament.vic.gov.au/sarc/E-Democracy/Final_Report/Glossary.htm


2) A collection of websites of hypertext, each of them can be visited and edited by anyone. “Wiki wiki” means "rapidly" in the Hawaiian language.



3) An online collaboration model and tool that allows any user to edit some content of webpages through a simple browser. mobileman.projects.supsi.ch/glossary.html


4) A wiki is a web application that allows users to add content, as on an Internet forum, but also allows anyone to edit the content. Wiki also refers to the collaborative software used to create such a website. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WIKI
