A wiki is a collaborative web site that allows users to create, edit, and share page content directly in a web browser. Information Technology currently offers the Elon Wiki Service to provide Elon groups and organizations with collaborative web spaces. Any Elon community group, project, course or organization can request a wiki space which they can populate, edit, and administer.
The service offers a range of access options. A wiki space can be restricted to a small group of colleagues or can be opened up to all current Elon members including faculty, staff, and students. The service integrates Elon's Active Directory account management so any Elon member can login with their email username and password. Unfortunately off campus users may not contribute to this service.
The Elon Wiki Service uses a product named Confluence, from Atlassian Software .
