Most of the stuff that I was developing here, I have moved to the Effective Education wiki. As more stuff is developed there, I plan to freely move back the progress that is made there back to Wikiversity and Wikibooks. For the time being, developing these ideas on their own site gives more flexibility and allows for more creation.

My Educational & WikiMedia Philosophy[edit]

My goal in life is to make meaningful contributions to this planet by sharing what I have learned with others. I have chosen Wikiversity as one of the primary places to be able to share for the following reasons:

  1. I want these ideas to be available to everyone, regardless of economic resources. WikiMedia projects allow this by using the GPL, and not charging for their site.
  2. I want these ideas to spread as far as possible. WikiMedia projects, especially Wikipedia, have attracted a large number of readers and contributors.
  3. I believe the best ideas are those that have been collaborated on. By the very nature of being a Wiki, the WikiMedia projects embody this concept.
  4. I want to be able to communicate these ideas in a standard format with a single "language" so I can focus more on the content and less on the creation. WikiMedia's wiki has become the de facto standard on the Internet.

My philosophy at this point is, whenever possible and appropriate, to do my creation of content on Wikiversity or related Wikimedia project. On many of these projects, I will not necessarily seek out collaboration, but I am very open to collaborating with whoever wants to join and help. Some projects may be created out of personal need, such as writing a paper for an in-person class I am teaching or I am taking, others will be created here purely as Wiki projects.
