The Confluence-based service is available to the MIT community and its guests and collaborators. IS&T offers the MIT Wikis Service to provide MIT groups and organizations with collaborative web spaces. Any MIT community group, project, or organization can request a wiki space.

Benefits and Key Features

  • Wiki spaces can be restricted to a small group of colleagues or can be opened up to the world.
  • Integrates MIT's well-established Moira list management service to manage group permissions.
  • For authorization, Wikis integrates with MIT's Touchstone authentication service.

How to Obtain

  • To access an existing space, visit the MIT Wikis Service.
  • To request your own Wikis space, Contact the IS&T Service Desk. Be sure to supply the following information:
    • Space Title: e.g. Energy Savings Initiative
    • Space Key: a short alphanumeric string which becomes part of the URL for the space (e.g. ENERGYSAVINGS)
  • For additional information on accessing and requesting Wikis spaces, visit the IS&T Wikis page.

Have Questions or Still Need Help?

Note: Since rules, page formats, and guidelines often differ from space to space, IS&T can only provide limited guidance to individual users.
