Free Wiki Skills Training

We're making history! The Learning4Content initiative is the largest wiki skills training project on the planet. Experience the joy of creating your learning materials in less time with less drudgery. Join our growing community who believe in the values underpinning open access to education and free educational materials. Learn how to leverage the power of the wiki - for your own project(s), or projects within the WE Community.

Reaching Out to All Educators - Formal, non-Formal and informal sectors

Whether you're a teacher, trainer or lecturer; instructional designer or learning technologist; researcher or administrator; or a student learner, there's an abundance of opportunity to work on exciting projects - one lesson at a time - and to grow with WikiEducator!

Grow with us!

There are currently 79,605 registered WikiEducators. By training thousands of educators under the Learning4Content project we aim to radically expand the availability of free learning content using a mass-collaboration model of OER development. You can help us! Spread the word, recruit newcomers to our neighbourhood and help them to become regular contributors to our project.

Get involved -- you will understand what this is all about. The Wiki-way is infectious! Oh!!! How wonderful all this sounds, but I really dont seem to know how to get to the participants list to edit their work.Can any one of you help me there. --NIMS Mrs. Nirmala Parameswaran) 17:34, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

Donating and developing a free content resource

L4C is a learn-by-doing project. You will be able to fine tune your collaborative content development skills by developing one free content resource to be shared with our community. In return for your free training, we ask that you will sign a learning contract and help us expand the inventory of OER assets for the WikiEducator community.
