MediaWiki, the software behind Wikipedia, allows users to collaboratively edit web content. Each page has a full history of changes available. Wiki pages do not have a hierarchical arrangement but can be categorized and linked together, allowing large amounts of content to be created without requiring an up-front organization structure.
Middlebury-hosted wikis can be open to the public, visible to the public but only editable by selected users/groups, or restricted to only be viewable/editable by selected users/groups,
Responsible citizenship in the Middlebury community obliges users of technology services to practice and maintain safe, responsible and ethical online behavior, awareness of the impacts of one’s actions, and respect for the rights of others. Appropriate use of technology services is governed by the Middlebury Handbook and ITS departmental policies.
