You don't have to carry all those paper resources around anymore. They're all right here...right in Wiki World!

WHATSA WIKI?

Wiki-wiki is the Hawaiian word for “quick.” In current usage, it is a generic name for a collaborative webpage which anyone can edit quickly without having to learn programming language. Thus, a Wiki is a collaborative website comprised of the perpetual and collective work of many authors. Wiki is an easy way to network and share information, resources and research with a virtual group of online learners. Sure beats carrying all those hard copy paper resources around!
