What is the wiki?
Welcome to the York Wiki Service. A wiki is a collection of editable web pages that is built up over time by individuals or teams of people. A more detailed description of a wiki can be found on Wikipedia.
The York Wiki Service runs on the widely-used wiki platform 'Confluence' and is centrally managed by IT Services. The wiki is secure and regular backups are taken.
Any member of staff can create wiki spaces for themselves or their groups. View access can also be granted to students. You can use a wiki to create documentation, store information or share notes. One of the great features of a wiki is that it's quick and easy to add and change content. Wikis are often informal, and their structure can evolve rather than being designed from the beginning.
Each version of a wiki page is retained, so you can always see the history of a page and restore a previous version if required. You can make your wiki public or restrict it to specific groups.
