Wiki Introduction

Description:

In an educational environment, the wiki serves as a collaboration tool in which students and instructors can participate as a self-organized group, developing and sharing knowledge locally (and even globally) via the web.

This workshop highlights the major features of the U of S Confluence Wiki and provides a "Quick Start" overview for novice users. The latest features of the newly released updated software will be highlighted. Now, using the Wiki is easier and enhancements include picture galleries, embedding of videos, Twitter feeds, Google Gadgets and Widgets, and many more.
