Anyone can edit a wiki page without the need to be a web developer or to request changes from a web site owner. Wikis are effective for collaborative writing, self-service web page creation, and shared maintenance of information. An example of a wiki page:

A forum is threaded discussion, also known as a bulletin board or listserv, which is a many-to-many form of communication. A forum supports asking and answering questions, sharing information, and structuring and archiving conversations in threads. Forums are well-suited to supporting a community of practice or a community of interest. Typically, forums can be used by visiting the web site or entirely by email. The email option makes them particularly useful. An example of a forum:
