Benefits and Features: 

Spark Wikis, one of the Spark suite of communication and collaboration tools, allows individuals and small groups to create, revise and edit web content from a browser using a simple "mark-up" language. The collaborative nature of wikis make it a perfect match for sharing online content with project teams,  knowledgebase's, small departmental websites, or any site that contains dynamic and frequently updated content. Whenever a wiki page is edited, a new version of the page is created with the old version being archived for site editors' reference.

  • Spark wikis reside on local Tufts servers
  • View and edit permissions are easy to set
  • Spark Wikis use Tufts Username and Tufts Password for authentication

To create or edit a Spark Wiki site, log in to Spark with a valid Tufts Username and Tufts Password.
