What is a wiki?

A wiki is an interactive web application for presenting texts and images in a structured and networked form. The best known public wiki is Wikipedia.

In a public wiki – like Wikipedia – anyone can create and edit content. With us, you can operate not only your own public wiki, but also a closed one.

What is my myWiki?

With the myWiki service, MIZ offers its employees the opportunity to set up their own wiki. It runs on the Confluence software. Confluence's strengths lie with the editor’s intuitive application.  You don't need any HTML skills or any knowledge of a special wiki syntax as used for formatting in other wikis.

How can I use myWiki?

All employees of Leuphana University of Lüneburg can use this service by filling in the registration form and sending it to Heiko Reincke by mail. You will then receive an email with your access data.
After setting up the wiki you can log in at and start posting content.

You will find an instruction manual after registration in myWiki itself.

For whom could a wiki be useful?

A wiki can be used in a variety of ways, and practical examples would be:
•    Research groups wishing to provide gathered information to each team member.
•    Departments that wish to create a common knowledge database.
•    Individual persons wishing to build up a knowledge store.
A wiki makes sense for anyone who wants to access information collected from anywhere in a central location.
