Wikiversity is a Wikimedia Foundation project devoted to learning resources, learning projects, and research for use in all levels, types, and styles of education from pre-school to university, including professional training and informal learning. We invite teachers, students, and researchers to join us in creating open educational resources and collaborative learning communities. To learn more about Wikiversity, try a guided tour, learn about adding content, or start editing now.

Today's Featured Project

Nonlinear finite elements is a course of about 150 to 200 pages designed by mechanical engineering researcher User:Banerjee. It is the best developed of a number of related mechanical engineering projects created by the same user - other projects include Introduction to Elasticity (about 100 pages) and Waves in composites and metamaterials (a 25-page lecture series). Nonlinear finite elements contains a lecture series, homework assignments and solutions. Course description: "an introductory course on nonlinear finite element analysis of solid mechanics and heat transfer problems. Nonlinearities can be caused by changes in geometry or be due to nonlinear material behavior. Both types of nonlinearities are covered in this course. The course aims to (1) provide the mathematical foundations of the finite element formulation for engineering applications (solids, heat, fluids) and (2) expose students to some of the recent trends and research areas in finite elements." For related materials, see also continuum mechanic, finite element analysis and nonlinear finite elements (category).

2020

  • 1 May: Clinical psychology students from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have updated Evidence-based assessment.
  • 30 April POGILs provide a structured format for engaging learning resources. See POGIL to learn how.
  • 19 April: The spring 2020 classes in English 105 at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill are finishing up their Federal Writers' Project – Life Histories pages.
  • 12 April: Programming Fundamentals provides an introduction to programming. New programmers should start with Python. Experienced programmers can follow the examples to quickly learn COBOL structure and help address the COVID-19 COBOL programmer shortage.
  • 21 March: Educators who are transitioning to distance learning and desire help are encouraged to post a request at Wikiversity:Colloquium.
  • 19 March: The learning resource COVID-19 is under development and require update and support especially for
    • translation,
    • checking,
    • updating, ...
Keep in mind that there is also Wikipedia:COVID-19 resource for encyclopedic content about the Corona virus, the Wikiversity COVID-19 is designed as a learning resource.
