Welcome to the University of Otago Wiki Service


This wiki (http://wiki.otago.ac.nz/) is the "home" of the Wiki Service. Here, you will find information about using your own wiki, what options you have available for user access, as well as information about applying for a wiki.

Your wiki will have a web address of http://yourwikiname.wiki.otago.ac.nz/.

For example a "Phantasmagorical Studies" wiki might have an address like http://phantasmagoricalstudies.wiki.otago.ac.nz/ .
