Wikiversity:Learning goals

Share your learning goals with the Wikiversity community. What most interests you? What topics do you find intellectually stimulating? Wikiversity was created as a center for collaborative learning designed to serve the needs of learners. If you are new to wiki you might feel shocked and disoriented. Conventional bricks-and-mortar educational institutions have a menu of courses that you are forced to select from. Wikiversity is a place where learners participate and learn by doing. At a wiki website, "doing" means collaboratively editing webpages. So click the "edit button" and become a Wikiversity participant. By sharing your learning goals you will be able to find and join learning groups that share your interests and can facilitate your learning path. Click here to contribute to this page. Turn your learning goals or independent study project into a collaborative learning project.

I want to read about philosophy. I am aware that there is actually a school under that topic but the thing is there's no content. I wondered if somebody would care to transfer those pages? Because philosophy is one thing I really want to get into but always feel disoriantated. I need a tutor or a guide! Help please! -- Quinlan Vos 22:38, 31 August 2006 (UTC)

I'm puting a request in for b:Wikiversity:Introduction to Philosophy to be moved over. There also is b:Philosophy section over at wikibooks which might be useful. Sorry I can't help more.-- Rayc 04:15, 2 September 2006 (UTC)
I've transferred over b:Wikiversity:Introduction to Philosophy to Introduction to Philosophy.-- digital_ me 04:25, 2 September 2006 (UTC)

I'd like to improve and learn more italian. I'd also like to help see some more stuff with music... Bananagirl 10:08, 20 February 2007 (UTC)
see either Topic:Italian, Category:Italian or take part in the Italian Wikiversity itself
for music you could start with: Category:Music, ---- Erkan Yilmaz uses the Wikiversity:Chat + Identi.ca 19:19, 24 October 2011 (UTC)

I'm interested in doing some learning about Judaism, I"m new to this wikiversity thing, so I'm not quite sure how to go about this.-- Keithg 12:43, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

see Topic:Jewish studies or Category:Jewish studies, ---- Erkan Yilmaz uses the Wikiversity:Chat + Identi.ca 19:19, 24 October 2011 (UTC)

Suggestions

Perhaps a collaberative effort between History, English, Math and Computer Science, for a cryptography or code-writing class/series?

You can go to Topic:Cryptography and get started. -- JWSchmidt 20:35, 10 December 2006 (UTC)
Sorry I actually already added a Cryptography "page" thanks to the instructions on how to create a new page. It is currently located at http://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/Cryptography. Not sure whether/how to merge the two existing topics. If you do, leave a message for me (Pgbridge2000) so I know the new address. The page I created is small but when I have the time I'll add more. Also is there a way for me to add information from the WikiBooks on various forms of Cryptography (I believe I recall their being ones on Caesar Shifts, Substitution Cyphers, etc.).

Perhaps a department of History of Math and Science? Fokion 02:22, 9 September 2006 (UTC)

Go ahead and start it. -- JWSchmidt 14:05, 9 September 2006 (UTC)

I would love a page teaching me how to solve my rubiks cube =D any one know how?!?! PhilB 11:08, 28 March 2007 (UTC)

See the resources mentioned at Optimal solutions for Rubik's Cube. -- JWSchmidt 12:54, 28 March 2007 (UTC)


I would like a wikimedical school,for med students, that would give you access to medical textbooks such as gray's anatomy, practice tests,etc. And also stuff you need to know to practice medicine, like the fact that the body's four fluids are : blood, pleghm, bile and water. The five Fs of someone at risk for gallbladder disease are Fat, Female, Fortyish, Fertile, Flatulent. Things like that.-anonymous May 15, 2007

You might want to take a look at School:Medicine and if there's nothing there that fits the bill (and there doesn't seem to be), you could start this up up yourself, and try to gather support from interested participants. To this end, I've left a note on School talk:Medicine. Cheers, Cormaggio talk 16:45, 15 May 2007 (UTC)

Thanks a lot. I'll try to drum up support for this, but I don't know if I can really help much, 'cause those two little snippets of medical trivia are about all I know on the subject...:)

Ah - you see, I think that could be an interesting way of producing interesting learning materials - for a novice to suggest to a more knowledgeable person how they (knowledgable person) could be of help in helping them (novice) with some basic understandings of the subject. There are many opportunities for learning and producing or facilitating learning here on Wikiversity - the process doesn't have to start with "the production of learning materials", but possibly by making suggestions, asking questions etc. - if you can see what I mean. To help, I've noticed quite a lot of medical people here on Wikiversity - I'm sure this could get going with the right prompting... Cormaggio talk 12:00, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

Theology

Would you consider theology and religion classes?

See School:Theology and Topic:Religious Studies. -- JWSchmidt 14:30, 27 June 2007 (UTC)

Adding on: My particular Christian denomination has little in the way of formal structure or established educational practice. I'd like to use Wikiversity as a tool for my own studies, and would be glad to interact with other interested parties--just as soon as I figure out how to work Wikiversity!
