A wiki is a type of collaborative work space, it’s a collection of web pages that encourages users to contribute or modify the content. A simple web interface can help a community collaboratively develop a document or web page, from anywhere.
Wikis can be public facing, meaning that anyone can see the content, or only open to a defined community within or across organizations. Wikipedia is one of the most well-known public wikis.
