This page outlines possible ways in which iskWiki! can be used.

Uses for Everyone at UP

Uses for Students

  • information on student groups
  • information on student sponsored events
  • documentation for group projects

Uses for Faculty

  • a collaborative environment for class projects
  • showcase of class output (photo gallery, essays, video projects and so on)
  • publication of research and teaching interests
  • publication of abstracts, pre-prints, reports
  • platform for collaborative writing with colleagues and you may choose when and which part to publish

Uses for Researchers

  • profile of research projects
  • update on research progress
  • work together on a document, and restrict public access before you're ready to share it. The importance of project documentation cannot be overemphasized. While findings may eventually end up as publication or report to funders, there may be a good deal of useful materials that are not included in final reports or publications.

Uses for University Administrators

  • platform for university-wide collaboration
  • dissemination of university policies
  • publication of updates, newsletters

When iskWiki! is not for you

  • not for shameless self-promotion
  • not a celebrity fan site
  • not a platform for blogging
  • not for twittering
