Instructional wikis are only available for course related use and must be requested by an instructor.
A wiki is a user friendly instant web-publishing system. It allows multiple users to easily collaborate on the same online document and keeps track of changes to pages. It also allows you to easily go back to old versions and compare different revisions.
At UW-Whitewater, we have setup Confluence for our ClassWiki service. The service is located at http://classwiki.uww.edu. Confluence is a versatile system which offers a rich text editor and provides a great level of flexibility when using wikis in your courses.
Instructors who would like a wiki space created for their classroom should contact the Learning Technology Center.
There are a number of video tutorials available at: YouTube Confluence Playlist
