From Leeds WIKI
Welcome to LeedsWIKI
A Wiki is a web technology that allows a web site to be collaboratively constructed and edited with no specialist tools and very little technical know-how. This is of interest in learning and teaching as a wiki can offer students and educators a more active, participative relationship with web based materials.
All users with ISS user accounts can edit this WIKI - just use your ISS userid and password to log in.
