What is a WIKI?
"A wiki is is a website that allows the creation and editing of any number of interlinked web pages via a web browser using a simplified markup language or a text editor."
definition taken from Wikipedia

The best thing about using wikis for education is that they can be used collaboratively, so that anyone with access can edit the pages.

Diferences between a blog and a wiki:
Blogs
Wikis
- Normally, there is only one author of entries or posts.
- Chronological structure, beginning with the last entry.
- External links.
- Posts to be commented.
- Usually more than one author and at the same level.
- The structure can be varied and previous versions can be restored: "No fear to delete something or make mistakes"
- External and internal links.
- Any kind of content.
