Idea #25: When Wiki Meets the Bible

Posted on April 8, 2015 by .BIBLE Registry Categories: Examples

One of the most used websites on the Internet is Wikipedia, a collaborative encyclopedia curated and edited by volunteers around the world. Wikipedia has become a valuable, albeit imperfect, knowledge base of information all contributed by unpaid people!

What’s great about a wiki platform is how it enables multiple editors and multiple contributors to collaboratively organize a large amount of information for the benefit of a particular community. Think of the great value that wikis could provide for content related to the Bible.
