Audience: Staff, IT


A wiki is a website that allows a selected set of users to create and collaboratively edit web pages using just their web browser. It runs as an application on a Web server, with the content, including all revisions, usually being stored in a file system or a database.



The ACCC runs a Foswiki service that is available for use by faculty, staff, departments, and units at UIC.


Foswiki wikis and Blackboard courses are special ACCC services that must be requested individually.

The ability to create personal Google Sites is automatically part of every individual GoogleApps@UIC account. Official Google Sites are also available; departments, units, and organizations may request an official Google Site for their group.


Each Foswiki wiki, Blackboard site, and official Google Site must be associated with a specific member of the UIC community, regardless of who or how many people are working on it.


There is no cost for any of these services.
