Working with wikis

July 31, 2008 at 11:50 am 3 comments

James Matheson, from Custom Ware  shared great info on wikis and working with them.  Some highlights:

What’s a wiki?  An editable web page BUT more social, people have more control over the content than a traditional web site and it is EASY!

What’s the difference in using one on the internet vs. an enterprise wiki? Permissions, notifications, search, versioning, and more!

Use Cases for Enterprise Wikis-intranet replacement, project management, meeting agendas/notes/minutes, social interaction and knowledge base.

Adoption– Put some structure to it so people can see the overall organization of it, keep it open and allow editing, seach must be excellent!

But this is a helpful blog:
