"The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled." — Plutarch (discuss)

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
The instructional design camp is a set of course modules based around a core created by Peter Honebein and students of the Indiana University. Groups from other universities, as well as other researchers and experts, are welcome to add modules to this project. The goal of this learning experience is to develop the skills needed to design instructional material using media (especially communication technologies) to transfer knowledge as effectively as possible between teachers and learners. The project currently comprises about 130 pages included well-developed modules on crafting well-formed learning objectives, prioritizing content for learning experiences, designing constructivist learning experiences, designing instruction for cognitive behaviors, designing instruction for psychomotor behaviors, designing instruction for affective behaviors, designing instruction for interpersonal behaviors.

At Wikiversity we are committed both to conventional learning patterns and resources, and to innovation and experimentation. Wikiversity is open to reconceptualising how web education can occur and how open educational resources can be made, and we are open to new ideas about the use of the Mediawiki environment for learning and research. Check out and help develop our learning projects and how learning works on Wikiversity, see how Wikiversity can help you, and explore how to get involved and start adding content.
