Wiki Transition Options

The following comparison chart is meant to help you identify an alternative to transition to from Confluence Wiki. It is not an exhaustive list—there may be other suitable alternatives for your use case not listed here. 


These Brown-supported tools are recommendations. Every use case has unique needs that may fall outside this the features listed here. If you have questions, do not see the features you use in the comparison chart, or want a consultation on moving your wiki to a new application, we would be happy to meet with you to discuss your needs. 


For teaching and learning needs, Canvas is an option. It’s a suitable choice when your site could be considered a learning community.
