A wiki: One tool for communication, collaboration, and collection of documentation
Abstract Wikis are a popular tool on college campusWikis are a popular tool on college campuses for documentation and collaboration. Despite the wide spread use of wikis, many users still do not understand what a wiki is, how it is used, or how to apply it to their needs. The myriad uses for wikis and figuring out how to use them can be overwhelming. At SUNY Geneseo, we use two different wikis to address two different technical requirements. One wiki is for internal documentation used by Computing & Information Technology (CIT). The other wiki is a college-wide wiki system where any department or individual can have a wiki for whatever subject they wish. The college-wide wiki system was installed two years ago and has many uses such as documentation, collaborative writing, committee work, communication, and education. We have addressed many problems along the way including administration, policies, technical issues, education, adoption, and advocacy. Much of what we have overcome can help other IT departments looking to install a wiki or to get their existing wiki to be more widely accepted and adopted. We will also show some of the unique and interesting ways our wiki is being used. Copyright 2009 ACM.ur wiki is being used. Copyright 2009 ACM.
