Wiki Strategy implemintation

So far, I have discussed how IGC can attain benefits by implementing micro-blogging or blogging strategy. This post will represent one of web 2.0 tools, that is a wiki, and in particular this tool will be defined, as well as a strategy should be implemented by organizations or IGC.

What is a wiki?

A wiki is defined as “a server program” which permits the Internet users to act as a team effectively to type “the content of a web site” advantageously. It simply works as any member of the team can coordinate it at the same stage and it is easy to be rewritten many times. It is consisting of two essential buttons: “edit and save” as well as the content can have links to be open on another web page “Hyper-linked words”. The greatest branded instance of wiki web sites is Wikipedia.

What is the strategy that should be implemented by IGC or any organization for its wiki?

Actually, there are several strategies of wikis that organizations or IDC should implement to gain the benefits of such wikis, however, I will discuss the main chosen strategy that is , a wiki has to  obtain a clear definition about the fields it is wanted to make use of the wiki for. It is important to give background about the basic concepts, which are related to the main topic. This will value the content of the wiki, and provide the reader with great understanding of such topics.

This strategy has some tactics to be implemented by such organizations or IGC.

1.      The pages of the Wiki should be related to other pages to complete the entire idea to the reader; this means the topics usually is consisted of some assumed knowledge, so the reader can have clear understanding.

2.      The related pages to each other in the wiki should be hyperlinked, for words needed explanations.

3.       The relevant information may be found inside or outside sources, thus the pages of Wikis should be connected internally and externally.

4.      The discussion’s pages should be used between editors to enhance the topic and its logical view.

Finally, this is an enjoyable video explaining the experience of Wiki in education.
