Wikis

Looking for an open source way to connect? We can help you build your own wiki!
“A wiki is a page or collection of Web pages designed to enable anyone who accesses it to contribute or modify content, using a simplified markup language. Wikis are often used to create collaborative websites and to power community websites. -Wikipedia . Since the word wiki is originally a Hawaiian word for “fast” – this type of site can definitely be a quicker way to build content if you know members to contribute. Collaborative methods lend towards building community and can be more influential in positive change. Some features of our wikis can include: User Accounts Login User Authentication Html Tags Advanced Search WYSIWYG” (“What You See Is What You Get”) editing Moderator Approval IP Logs Revision History

Portals

“A web portal is a site that provides a single function via a web page or site. Web portals often function as a point of access to information on the World Wide Web. Portals present information from diverse sources in a unified way. Portals provide a way for enterprises to provide a consistent look and feel with access control and procedures for multiple applications, which otherwise would have been different entities altogether.” -Wikipedia An example of a search engine web portal is Yahoo!. Other portal types are internet service providers (i.e., AOL, Freeserve,) academic sites (i.e., MyLibrary) and topical specialists (i.e., ivillage, Hero). Smaller businesses and organizations can set up portal features on their site to attract and retain more visitors/members. Some features of a portal may include: Channels/Categories User Profiling Content Filtering Personalization Browseable Hierarchical Directories Advanced Search News feeds (headlines, world, local, weather, stocks, sports, travel, jobs, specialty news etc.) Ask an Expert Moderated Sections Other Services to Attract Visitors (i.e., book mark manager, address book, calculator, currency Exchange, diary/planner, geographic maps, people finder, storage space, zip code look up, calendar of events)
