Welcome to the Wikiversity Department of Algorithms, proudly part of the School of Computer Science.

The Wikiversity Department of Algorithms is a content development project where participants create, organize and develop learning resources about algorithms.

An algorithm is, in layman's terms, a method to go about achieving a particular task. Usually, this task is meant to be performed by a computer or other machine, like calculations and data analysis; however, its definition can be easily extended to tasks in everyday life and other situations.

The "topic" namespace contains pages that are for management and organization of small academic units at Wikiversity such as departments (see: Wikiversity:Topics).

Learning projects[edit]

See: Learning Projects and the Wikiversity:Learning model.

Learning materials and learning projects are located in the main Wikiversity namespace. Simply make a link to the name of the learning project (learning projects are independent pages in the main namespace) and start writing! We suggest the use of the learning project template (use "subst:Learning project boilerplate" on the new page, inside the double curved brackets {{}}).

Learning materials and learning projects can be used by multiple departments. Cooperate with other departments that use the same learning resource.

Remember, Wikiversity has adopted the "learning by doing" model for education. Lessons should center on learning activities for Wikiversity participants. We learn by doing.

Select a descriptive name for each learning project.

Full Video Lecture Series[edit]

Each of these is a full series of lectures on algorithms, as well as some other course materials. These are designed as roughly third-year courses in computer science.
