SLA Click U Live Seminar: Best Practices for Setting Up Wikis


 

Presented by Darlene Fichter, Data Library Coordinator, University of Saskatchewan

Are you interested in expanding your knowledge of tools for online collaboration?? If you answered "YES" then be sure to attend this practical and useful seminar.

 

Many organizations are turning to wikis to support communication, collaboration and shared knowledge bases for staff and work teams. Find out how wikis can help you deal with just-in-time information. The flexible nature of wikis makes them a great tool for creating instant intranets or web sites, team areas, knowledgebases, or library/IT documentation areas. Find out about best practices for rolling out a wiki and where you test drive a wiki using either a hosted solution. Learn about tools to select the right wiki software for your organization.
