Just thinking - it would ne nice to have some sort of certificates in various disciplines that would indicate a certain level of completion/competence in that area of learning. i realize that Wikiversity is NOT a degree-granting body but it would be interesting to gain some competency in the school/subjects contained on this site. --Imperoo1

See for example IT Fundamentals. --Marshallsumter (discusscontribs) 18:24, 4 May 2017 (UTC)

But I don't understand... Are students or teachers of these colleges and universities participated in any courses in Wikiversity? What courses? -- Andrew Krizhanovsky (discusscontribs) 05:24, 6 October 2017 (UTC)
If you search here the college or university name as stated you can put together a list of courses from each. I haven't seen a comprehensive list of their courses offered here. --Marshallsumter (discusscontribs) 13:58, 6 October 2017 (UTC)
Most of the courses offered here can be found in Category:Courses. Here's some more schools and courses:
  1. National University of La Plata, Argentina - Escuela de Lenguas UNLP.
  2. Ozyegin University - Fluid Mechanics for Mechanical Engineers.
  3. Ohlone College - Digital Media Concepts.
  4. University of North Carolina - Federal Writers' Project - Life Histories.
  5. University of Canberra - Motivation and emotion. --Marshallsumter (discusscontribs) 18:37, 9 October 2017 (UTC)
