NYU Wikis is a web-based collaborative tool that faculty and students can use to create and manage private and public content for research, instruction, and University-related activity. A wiki is a tool that enables the easy creation and editing of interlinked web pages, using a rich text editor within the browser. Wikis are often used to create collaborative websites and projects, to power community websites, for meetings and personal note taking, and as intranets.


NYU Wikis offers the following features and capabilities:
