Template:Topic boilerplate

Start the page name for a department with the "Topic:" prefix; departments reside in the Topic: namespace. Wikiversity departments can be "contained" (linked to) by multiple schools. If two schools link to the same department they should cooperate to develop the department. See: Wikiversity:Naming conventions.

Learning ProjectsEdit

See: Learning Projects and the Wikiversity:Learning model.

Learning materials and learning projects are located in the main Wikiversity namespace. Simply make a link to the name of the learning project (learning projects are independent pages in the main namespace) and start writing! We suggest the use of the graphics boilerplate, by doing {{subst:School:Graphics/topic_boilerplate}} on the new page.

Learning materials and learning projects can be used by multiple departments. Cooperate with other departments that use the same learning resource.

Remember, Wikiversity has adopted the "learning by doing" model for education. Lessons should center on learning activities for Wikiversity participants. We learn by doing.

Select a descriptive name for each learning project. Learning projects can be listed in alphanumeric order by code, however code numbers are optional.
