Welcome to the Wikiversity Center for Network Certification.

The Center for Network Certification is a content development project where participants create, organize, and develop learning resources for network certification.

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

Department news[edit]

  • 29 December 2006 - Department founded!

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.
