User talk:Yvessimon1/Open Popular University

From Wikiversity
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Open Popular University seems to have been founded by one person. Prominent on the home page is a Twitter feed. It links to other educational resources. The page here is mostly a collection of ideas with little sign that they have been realized, beyond starting a web site that is quite undeveloped.

Pages like this on Wikiversity can cause disruption. See http://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikiversity-l/2013-December/000973.html for an extreme view. This page goes much further than what was proposed there. Some users on Wikiversity, at least historically, would not want to allow this even in user space.

I want to encourage the user to develop educational resources here. OPU appears to be mostly a collection of links elsewhere. Until it has significant content of its own, I don't see that linking it from Wikiversity is appropriate. --Abd (discusscontribs) 23:12, 25 February 2014 (UTC)
