Wikiversity:The original learning model

The Wikiversity learning model

This page explores the Wikiversity learning (or "e-learning") model, a general approach to learning at Wikiversity. You are also invited to join the reading and discussion group about this model.

The Wikiversity model

The goal of some Wikiversity participants is to create a vast collection of learning materials to be downloaded and used in physical schools and for self-study. For other participants the goal is to evaluate and provide feedback for students and teachers on how various educational resources fulfill their needs.

At Wikiversity educational resources are called " learning resources" and are roughly divided into learning projects and learning materials. The approved Wikiversity project proposal developed in response to a request by the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees also included learning groups. A slogan that captures the intent of the Wikiversity model is " Learning by doing".
