A major part of Wikiversity learning is organized around Learning Projects and Learning Groups. Wikiversity encourages a "learn by doing" model for education. Wikiversity contributors develop learning activities on a wide variety of topics. Wiki technology promotes collaborative editing of "learning projects". Participants are encouraged to learn by exploring topics of interest and editing the wiki pages.
