Rigging, or skinning, refers to the act of weighting a polygon mesh to a skeleton for the purposes of animation.

The "mesh" is the skin, and it is stuck to the "bones" of the animation rig, which form a skeleton that can then be manipulated by an Animator to pose and animate the model.

Rigged models include characters, vehicles, weapons, cloth, anything which needs to animate or deform in a game.

The skeleton rig can be a complex structure and is usually recreated to fit the unique requirements of each job. It is usually created by a Technical Artist or an Animator.

Skinning

The term Skinning usually refers to assigning bone weights to the vertices of the model. In the past skinning also meant painting a color texture for a 3D mesh, but this hasn't really survived past the Quake 3 era.
