Web programs have become increasingly interactive in recent years with the advent of new applications such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. “Wiki’ sites are also proliferating and are now used for a wide range of collaborative activities such as teaching, education, publication, peer review and research support.

The Healing and Resilience Division commenced using Wiki as a tool to support research in 2009. The website offers no-cost, secure off- line information sharing which is easy to set up and manage. The Division now has six projects using Wiki and one using a free Google site. This presentation will provide an overview of our use of Wiki thus far, and compare and contrast that use with the free Google website established for our Alcohol and Other Drugs Workforce Orientation project.
