Because you will be collaborating with other students in a group, we expect you to be using collaboration software. In particular, a Wiki is absolutely crucial for your group, as it gives you a central place to write down your game design ideas, post concept art, and keep track of your meetings.
While there are many free Wiki sites available, they tend to be cluttered with a lot of advertising. In addition, you may not want your class Wiki visible to the whole wide world. Fortunately, you have an alternative. Cornell provides a local Wiki service: Confluence.
You are not required to use Confluence, however. Unlike Cornell Forge, we are open to external Wikis. We want you to find the right tools to make you productive. The following have all been popular choices in the past:
With that said, unless you have a strong preference for one of the alternatives, it would be nice to move most of the group Wikis to Confluence. We will have more information about this when it is time for your group to create a Wiki later in the course.
