A Wiki — is a website area (or a dedicated website) whose structure and content is created and maintained by the website users using the website tools and functions.
Wiki is an ideal instrument for the creation of knowledge bases, to prepare requirements specification or other documents requiring simultaneous efforts of many people (which makes it, in essence, a perfect tool for teamworking).
Each wiki page features the commenting tools and the versioning control system. The former function enables users to discuss the content of a wiki page in-place. The latter provides means to track, control or undo changes the users make to the wiki page.

The Wiki module empowers users with the following functions:
- Edit wiki pages in teamwork mode in the visual HTML editor, or using the standard Wiki markup;
