The wiki service offers a collaborative workspace for a variety of purposes, including departmental and instructional use.  The wiki is a web-based tool for collaboration and discussion.  Users are able to create and manage their own wiki space. Popular uses include team notes or documentation, information sharing, or collaboration with classmates and external researchers.  Features of the wiki include threaded discussion, embedded media, revision history, and seamless integration with the ICON Dashboard.  Visit the wiki homepage to see examples, tutorials, and to apply for your own wiki space.
