Welcome to the Hwa Chong Institution Wikispaces


The Hwa Chong Institution Wikispaces is a collaborative platform to support teaching and learning for all staff and students of HCI. It also acts as a platform to provide useful and updated information to all. Staff members can create wikis directly, while students will need to seek the permission of their teachers before creating any wiki (unauthorised wikis will be deleted without notice). Please read through the Terms of Use before creating a wiki, in particular the naming convention. Also, note that all current staff and student accounts have been created, so please do not request for a new account.

What is a wiki and why should I use one?


A wiki is software that allows registered users or anyone to collaboratively create, edit, link, and organize the content of a website, usually for reference material. Wikis are often used to create collaborative websites and to power community websites. (From Wikipedia, accessed 11 April 2008.

Wikis provide a simple but effective space for content creation and collaboration and can be used in a wide variety of educational settings. To have a better understanding of wikis, watch the video below:
