=== What is it used for? ===
For things that use text and media.
For documentation, course information and materials, multi-authored and ongoing writing, and just about anything else.
=== Why is this space called KUMU? ===
The word "wiki" is drawn from the Hawaiian language, meaning quick. [http://books.google.ca/books?id=bHdRhjL9Y9EC&lpg=PA182&ots=bwH53cJINZ&dq=kumu%20meaning%20hawaiian&pg=PA182#v=onepage&q=kumu%20meaning%20hawaiian&f=false "Kumu" has many meanings] in Hawaiian, among them "teacher", "foundation", and "starting place". A tip of the hat to [https://kumu.brocku.ca/ our friends at Brock University] for inspiring this name.
