From UBC Wiki

Wiki is the Hawaiian word for quick. "Wikiwiki" means really quick. There is no quicker way to get text online. Anyone can post from any machine and there are no permissions required or passwords to remember. This makes wikis ideal for keeping an ongoing list of resources, posting meeting agendas and notes, or creating a space for collaborative brainstorming and composition. Supported by OLT, users across campus are using wikis to support group work, for project planning, as bulletin boards, to author content for WebCT courses, to complement conferences and events, and to support course experiments in hypertext composition.

Note: UBC wiki accounts are for invited users only. If you would like an invitation, please email olt.webadmin@ubc.ca.
