Wikiversity is a Wikimedia Foundation project dedicated to learning materials and learning communities, as well as research. It was set up as a Wikimedia project (in “beta” phase), on 15th August, 2006, with the English and German Wikiversities, as well as the multilingual co-ordination hub. Since then, these have been joined by the French, Greek, Italian and Spanish Wikiversities. Despite what its name may suggest, Wikiversity is not limited to university (or tertiary) level materials, but is open to materials and communities of all learner levels. The way it can facilitate learning activities and communities is still being explored, but is centred around the model of ‘learning by doing’, or ‘experiential learning’.
