Template:Using Wikiversity This page provides suggestions to guide teachers who want to have their students use Wikiversity in conventional brick and mortar classroom-type settings. Wikiversity participation can:
- advance participant's knowledge;
- create useful content and learning activities that can be shared around the world.
It is important to consider what your students will contribute here. Wikiversity is an experiment on how to make use of wiki technology to support education. If your project fits within that broad mission then you are welcome to make use of Wikiversity resources for your class.
If you feel you could utilize Wikiversity to facilitate your teaching and your students' learning, please feel free. There are a myriad of ways you can go about doing this, and quite a few ways this has already been done.
Wikiversity can also be used as a place to collaborate on projects. You and your students can write papers, conduct research, and discuss the subjects being studied and how best to study them.
You and your students can create accounts using their real name or a psuedonym and then utilize Wikiversity as their own personal learning environment whilst participating in the course.
Wikiversity can be difficult for a newcomer to fathom. The welcome page provides an overview to help participants get started quickly. Most Wikiversity participants will also be helpful in guiding newcomers and explaining how we do things. However, for the sake of your class we strongly suggest that you yourself contribute here and become familiar with Wikiversity before sending your students. Your students will be much less likely to encounter problems here if you can give them appropriate guidance.
If you have any questions or need advice -to leave a message and someone from wikiversity will contact you and help you get started. Feel free to contact anyone from the welcoming committee (by clicking on talk next to the name) and type a message describing the project that you would like to start here:
