Easy Blogs and Wikis
UCFileSpace offers blogs and wikis for personal and group use. If you’re not familiar with a blog (short for “Web log”), think of it as a public diary or journal. Each blog entry is typically a single idea or concept, or perhaps an opinion on a topic. Other people can view your blog and make comments if you allow them. The UCFileSpace blogging service is easy to use, and you can get started by visiting https://wiki.ucfilespace.uc.edu and clicking on the ‘blogs’ tab.
For groups or courses, UCFileSpace also offers wikis. A wiki is a shared online collaboration space where group members can jointly work to create online documents; think Wikipedia. Each wiki page can link to other pages or Web sites, and can also include pictures and other multimedia. The UCFileSpace wiki service uses a simple editing interface, similar to what you would find in a word processor. Each group wiki also includes a group blog. Like the blogging service, the UCFileSpace wiki service is easy to use, and you can get started by visiting https://wiki.ucfilespace.uc.edu and clicking on the ‘wikis’ tab.
Anyone at UC can create their own UCFileSpace blog or wiki. Just click the ‘Create my Blog’ or ‘Create a new Wiki’ buttons to get started. An automated setup assistant will walk you thru the process, including defining who has access to your blog or wiki.
For course-based wikis, we can tie your course number to the wiki’s membership list and students will be granted access automatically. Send an e-mail request to UCFShelp@UC.Edu to get your course assigned to a course-based wiki.
