Lists of Wikiversity Learning Projects[edit]

A fundamental unit of community within Wikiversity is a message between two participants which contains meaningful information.

Another fundamental unit of community within Wikiversity is the Learning Group. Wikiversity Learning Groups are groups of Wikiversity participants with a shared learning goal. Learning Groups participate in Wikiversity Learning Projects that are relevant to achieving a group's learning goals. Learning projects involve the creation and development of Wikiversity pages that describe the learning experiences of Learning Group members.
