What is a Wiki?
- A Wiki allows the visitors themselves to easily add, remove, and otherwise edit and change some available content.
- This ease of interaction and operation makes a wiki an effective tool for collaborative authoring.
- A Wiki is like an online book, that contains as many pages as necessary, can be filled with any type of content and can easily be ordered or reordered.
- It can also be updated at any time. Since medical information is constantly updated and changed a Wiki can allow us to update information immediately.
- It also allows you to search for free up to date medical information.
- Wikis are represented as a collection of webpages. Each page of the wiki can be edited by simply clicking "Edit this page" and it is relatively easy to link to other wiki pages. All of this takes place within the web browser. No other programs are required to view or edit a wiki page. But, when you are done you often have a collection of pages that can best be described as an online book with each wiki page representing a page of the book.
- All of the information sits on a server and is backed up regularly.
