The NIST Wiki

On the Portal, NIST has Wiki capabilities primarily for teachers to collaborate and post resources for students. There are options for students to have input into Portal based Wikis, but they need to be arranged with Khun First.

Advantages of the NIST Portal Wikis is that they are housed at NIST and thus are not reliant on having an Internet connection. They are also backed up repeatedly every day, so the information is safely stored.

Disadvantages of the school Wikis is they tend to be more restrictive and less user friendly than those recently made available on line.
