How is this different than Wikiversity? —Justin (koavf)TCM 08:40, 31 January 2018 (UTC)

Maybe it is like Wikiversity, but better. The problem of Wikiversity is that it is like an educational encyclopedia that includes lessons that are mostly general and unordered and do not follow a unified format, making it difficult to use. So I suggested the idea of creating a wiki dedicated to each country, so that it could focus on the country's educational programs. But if the idea is not right, I'm also not sure whether if it's right or not, it might be also better to rely on the existing one that already in place and improve it instead of creating a new one.--Mohamed.mdb (talk) 04:22, 1 February 2018 (UTC)
