Wikiversity: An "Open University" project based on Wikimedia technology

"Welcome to Wikiversity, "where teachers learn, and learners teach".

Wikiversity: An "Open University" project based on Wikimedia technology. The wikiversity is an ambitious project aiming to build a free online learning community more or less similar to "Open Universities" projects. Practitioners will find a set of Wikibook, Wikiqoute, Wikisource (Free Content Library), Wikimedia Commons, Wiktionary and all other accessible Open Content based on wikimedia technolgy. Wikiversity described itself as "a community for the creation and use of free learning materials and activities. Wikiversity is a multidimensional social organization dedicated to learning, teaching, research and service." Its primary goals are to create and host free content, multimedia learning materials, resources, and curricula for all age groups in all languages and to develop collaborative learning projects and communities around these materials. Learners and teachers are invited to join the Wikiversity community as editors of this wiki website where anyone can edit the pages.
