Wiki Research Project




A Wiki is an editable web page that you can create, some pages are open to the public and free to be edited by anyone, while others are only open to registered users to edit or view. You may be asked to create a page as a part of a group or individually. You are probably very familiar with one particular Wiki, Wikipeda. Wikipedea is one of the most popular public Wiki’s created.
