Types of Wiki Requests

Please review the types of requests below and fill out the appropriate form for the type of wiki you would like.

  1. Personal Wiki Spaces: Faculty and Staff may activate a Personal Space on their account without submitting a request to support.  A personal space can act as a practice area to learn the wiki or try things out, or other activities such as housing your research or managing personal projects. To turn on your Personal Space right now, please follow these instructions.


  2. Course Wiki Space: Use this form to request a wiki space for an individual semester of a course. Academic Technology Support will add your classlist to the wiki space granting your students access.

    You must be logged in with a Faculty or Staff account to access this link.
