Wikipedia, the mother of all knowledge wikis, is unmatched in the breadth and depth of articles that it has published. However, if you want to have an awesome experience with knowledge-based wikis, then you should check out Qwiki. This a new website provides an interactive wiki experience with the help of a slick interface and audio-visual presentations for all its entries.
To start using Qwiki, just enter any topic in its search bar. Qwiki finds the most relevant page where you can listen to the text-to-speech generated audio and picture slides. You can also click the content tab to read the short transcribed description, find pictures of the subject, and view related qwikis. Hover your mouse over the the images in the presentation to enlarge and click through them. While you can’t change the text like in normal wikis, you can still improve an entry by suggesting a picture, YouTube video, or providing feedback to the audio quality.
