'Wikihost' is a MediaWiki service the IT department provides to the faculties, institutes, departments and research groups at UIB, and other institutions at the UHR sector.
What is Wiki?
Wiki is a publishing tool where many can participate and contribute with their knowledge and experiences.
- With the Wiki you can produce text information with other people in a simple manner.
Wikepedia is a good example, and Wikihost-service uses the same technology: 'Mediawiki'
- You decide whether the information should be available to all the world or only for your own ‘wiki’ group.
- All changes will be preserved in revisions
that means you get a history of the changes, and you see the content of the wiki-article at any certain time in it's history of changes.
- No information is lost, every change is preserved.
- You can register a “watch” on the wiki-document and you will receive an email each time someone makes a change to the wiki page.
- You can "protect" pages so that only administrators and bureacrats can change the information
