What is the wiki?
Welcome to the York Wiki Service. A wiki space is a collection of editable web pages that is built up over time by a team of people. A more detailed description of a wiki can be found on Wikipedia. The York Wiki runs on the widely-used wiki platform 'Confluence' and is centrally managed by IT Services. Regular backups are taken.
The York Wiki Service is available for any member of staff to create wiki spaces for themselves or their groups. Any member of staff can create a wiki space on behalf of a student.
Have a browse through the Space directory (click on Spaces above) to see some existing examples of wikis.
You can use a wiki to create documentation, develop content or share notes. One of the great features of a wiki is that it's quick to add and change content. Wikis are often informal, so your pages don't need to be tidy all the time, and the structure of wikis tends to evolve rather than being designed from the beginning. Each version of a wiki page is stored, so you can always see the history of a page and restore a previous version if needed.
