2. WHY? If you would like to add information to Wikipedia, you really need to be an expert on the topic. What makes Wikiversity different, is that everyone can join, add information and ask questions. 3. Guilds / Learning Circles Whats more, Wikiversity is divided in guilds (or learning circles) where experts and everyone who wants to learn can form a team. They work together on a specific topic and learn from each other. (you may join more guilds of course) Ideally, a team really gets to know each other well, so that people get actually engaged. Learning Circles could be about Making beautiful websites or Social Business, or smaller components of the subject: e.g. Start-up finance. 4. Log in1) 2) Log in OR make an account 5.
