A wiki is a community site where users can edit the content. It is simple, easy and fun to learn! It is an environment where users can edit pages as they want adding information, links, lists and images that they find useful, you can use a Wiki as a feature of a users community, a club, a fan site, etc. The most important elements in the Wiki are the Wiki pages. You will see a menu on the pages with several options and one of them will be “edit”, when you click “edit” you are able to edit the page that you are watching, you can try editing a page and writing some text on it. Use the “preview” feature as many times as you need it before clicking “save”. Please try our SandBox to get used to the concept of WIKI and to test your skills.
