What is


the RIT Wiki?


Wikis are collaborative websites that multiple people can view and edit. They can be used for a variety purposes including collaboration, course or project management, as a knowledge repository, for document sharing and editing, or as an easy to edit Website or Intranet.

What is Confluence?

In 2008, RIT adopted the Confluence wiki product to build and host its wiki spaces. Produced by Atlassian, an Austrailan software development company, Confluence was selected for its versatility, in-depth user resources, competitive cost, ability to self-host, and long list of academic partners.

The RIT Wiki is a collection of Confluence wiki spaces built and maintained by RIT faculty and staff, and supported by the Teaching & Learning Services department Studio in the Wallace CenterInnovative Learning Institute.

Editing and viewing permissions on each RIT wiki space are determined by individual wiki owners. Your wiki can be private or open to the world!

For information on teaching and learning with a wiki, please see the related Teaching Element on Wikis.
