What is a Wiki?
Wikis are collaborative websites that multiple people can view and edit. They can be used for a variety of collaborative purposes, including knowledge repositories, course or project management, or document sharing and editing.
What is the RIT Wiki?
The RIT Wiki is a collection of Confluence wiki spaces built and maintained by RIT faculty and staff, and supported by the Teaching & Learning Studio in the Innovative Learning Institute.
In 2008, RIT adopted Confluence to build and host its wiki spaces. Produced by Atlassian, an Australian 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.
Your wiki can be private or open to the world!
