The Canisius College Wiki, powered by software called Confluence, contains documentation and instructions essential for faculty, staff, and students at the college. It also can display information relevant to partner organizations, prospect students, and others outside the college.
ItThe Wiki's chief virtue is ease of use. It is less polished or attractive as the main website (www.canisius.edu) but allows faculty and staff to more quickly add or update information shared on the web. Each wiki page has its own sharing link, so visitors need not navigate through the wiki to find something; Canisius employees can simply share a page or set of pages directly with clients or colleagues. The main Canisius website should properly display information that seldom changes, or has a strong public relations purpose. The wiki houses documentation and instructions consisting of lengthier text blocks, that may change more frequently, or that should be maintained by several employees at once.
Let's start by watching a very basic introduction:
