Looking for a way for your community members to contribute information to an online collective database? Why not consider a wiki? A wiki is a website that allows multiple contributors to easily add, edit, and contribute content, images, web links, and more. Wikis are specifically designed for collaborative editing and are used as public websites, for personal note taking, in corporate intranets, and for knowledge management systems.
With the global success of Wikipedia, many organizations are curious of the pros, cons, and technical details of how exactly wikis work. This free webinar will review the basics of wikis, including software options, best practices, advantages, as well as drawbacks. It will also include discussions with a nonprofit professional and librarian, both of whom are effectively using wikis.
This will be an introductory webinar; any organization who is interested in learning more about wikis is welcome to join.
