From Wikiversity

I will use this as a starting point when I see people pasting from other sites (e.g. also wikimedia projects).


Hello,

this seems to be only a copy from Wikipedia's article w:American Civil War Why don't we make a learning experiment now with this and try to rephrase this in our own words or use Wikipedia's article to generate information or a better learning experience on another level ?

"A duplication of other Wikimedia projects. While Wikiversity complements other Wikimedia projects, it will not simply duplicate their content. So, if you want to read about a topic, you may be better off visiting, say, Wikipedia or Wikibooks, but if you want to learn about this topic, you can do so at Wikiversity. Learning materials will be created and used on Wikiversity, but materials on other projects may also be used as learning materials themselves or even places to consolidate this learning, i.e. writing an article, manual etc based on what you've learned. There may be some overlapping, but each project will maintain its own focus."
