A wiki is a website where a group of people can add and edit connected pages using their web browsers. Otago Wikis are a simple way for your group to efficiently manage information. University of Otago staff or students can have an Otago Wiki for group activities such as:

  • Departmental intranet
  • Group learning projects
  • Project communication
  • Technical procedures or documentation

There is no charge for an Otago Wiki. It is a free service.

You can request an Otago Wiki by logging in to the AskOtago Service Portal with your staff username and password and completing a request form. If you are a student, you will need to ask a staff member to make the request on your behalf:

Wiki Creation Request

Restricted Otago Wikis

When you set up your Otago Wiki, you have the option to make it available to be viewed or edited by everyone, or only to registered members. Only the wiki administrator can register members. Contact AskOtago if you don't know who the administrator is for your wiki.
