A wiki is a perfect way to organize and coordinate all kind of meetings, workshops, workflows etc. Below you find some selected examples of what you can do with your internal workspace.
Planning and Documentation of Events
You can plan an event via an internal wiki from the beginning onwards. All aspects of a meeting such as registration and program can be dealt with the wiki. This approach is in particular suitable when the team sits all over the world. By using the wiki, all organizational questions, for instance work schedules, were handled most effectively, without loosing time because of sending around documents via Email.
Participants can write the results of their meetings directly into the wiki.
All presentations can be uploaded into the wiki and are accessible the very same day. Consequently, every participant are able to access the information promptly. Besides, the organizational team does not have to send around Emails containing tons of bytes.
Since April 2011 energypedia uses the software extension Semantic MediaWiki (SMW) which allows the creation of databases for various purposes:
- to-do lists
- project management
- product information
- storing of bibliographies / publications
Resources for MediaWiki (SMW):
Example: Pico-PV Database
Just recently, Energising Development moved its traditional database (Excel) of Pico-PV sets to Energypedia. From now onwards, Energypedia users can share their knowledge of certain PV-sets with the Energypedia community via the Pico-PV Database. As a special service, this database offers to run special queries on the dataset; i.e. if a project is interested in a particular battery type or in a special span of costs for PV sets, this inquiry is easily answered by this service.
