Wikis are taking the Internet by storm, increasing collaboration from the corporate boardroom to the university dorm room. Never before has a technology allowed users to take a hands-on role in creating and editing volumes of content in real time. VTC author Dawn Dunkerley will guide you through the fundamentals of wiki history, concepts, and technology, helping you to make an informed decision about your wiki needs. To begin learning, simply click the links.

* Captions not available on CD version.

In this section, let's talk about the things that we're going to cover within the Introduction to Wikis title. First I'm going to give you a brief introduction to wikis. We're going to talk about how wikis are occurring everywhere, some wiki roles, how you can use wikis at work, exploring different types of wikis. We're going to cover the father of wikis, Wikipedia, we're going to talk about wiki engines, version control, wiki hosting, creating your very own wiki, advanced wiki knowledge and then we're going to talk about some wiki best practices. Then I'll wrap up the course and I'll tell you more about myself, the author.
