This portal links to information about Wikiversity. Newcomers should start with the Introduction to Wikiversity. The Wikiversity: namespace contains pages with more detailed information about the Wikiversity project. This portal provides a guide to the Wikiversity namespace, particularly the policy pages. Wikiversity is a relatively new wiki community (see Wikiversity:History), so special emphasis is given to Wikiversity development. This portal also links to learning resources that help new visitors and active Wikiversity participants learn more about Wikiversity and how to use its wiki technology to promote learning. Since all of this is really too much for one portal, most of the links to learning resources about Wikiversity should be collected at this other portal. THIS portal is mostly a guide to policy and other "meta-level" topics.
Wikiversity began within the Wikibooks project (see the Wikibooks Wikiversity pages). A Wikiversity project proposal was approved that called for two major components of Wikiversity:
1) learning materials and
2) learning activities.
The Wikiversity model for e-learning is discussed at the Education Portal. For more details about the origins of the Wikiversity project, see History of Wikiversity. Wikiversity policy for research is at the beta.wikiversity.org multilingual hub. Policies specific for the English language Wikiversity are listed at Wikiversity:Policies.

"..... the idea here is to also host learning communities, so people who are actually trying to learn, actually have a place to come and interact and help each other figure out how to learn things. We're also going to be hosting and fostering research into how these kinds of things can be used more effectively." -Jimmy Wales comments at (Wikimania 2006)
"Education [...] is a process of living and not a preparation for future living." — John Dewey (discuss)
