Is it possible to add content, ask a question or post answer to a question without editing a page?

I am looking to set up a page for a collaborative research project where users from different teams can post questions, submit answers to the questions, and post significant results and findings from their work. And most importantly can it be done without going to the edit mode by a user? Editing a page gives unrestricted access to all the content which might inadvertently be changed when a user is adding their contents. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!!
