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.

This page is an index of all Wikiversity' help and maintenance pages. The following articles contain guidance and information about Editing, Policies and guidelines, and participating in the Wikiversity community.

Having trouble finding out what you need to know? If it's not covered by the FAQ, try asking at the Colloquium or the Wikiversity:Help desk.

General information


The function of MediaWiki itself (the software of Wikiversity) is described at the MediaWiki User's Guide in Meta-wiki. The MediaWiki-handbook in Meta-wiki is not kept here in order to avoid duplicate maintenance work (the same applies to all help pages not specific to Wikiversity).

If you suspect a software bug, ask for feedback at the Colloquium, and then report it using Wikimedia Phabricator. This is the only way to get MediaWiki developers to notice your bug reports.

Other help page collections

As Wikiversity is younger than Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects and/or received less attention there are large sets of how-tos and other help pages available in those projects and are often also a good additional source finding a helpful How To for your work in Wikiversity:
