•What is a wiki and how can be useful for an organization?
•Select ONE of the products that allows you to create a wiki and describe it in detail.
•Identify ONE organizational goal that would be supported by this wiki.
•What features would you offer in the wiki to support that organizational goal?
•How this is related to the learning objectives of this module?
