What is a wiki?
If you don't have a wiki account or haven't edited a wiki before, you are not alone. Drawing on the international survey data maintained by the OER Foundation, the majority of educators working in the formal education sector do not have a public wiki account. Now is a good time to improve these statistics by creating a wiki account and discovering the power of this collaborative technology. As a first step, watch the Wikis in Plain English video by Common Craft on YouTube (shown at right).
