Please refer to WikiCaribbeanwebpage for further information on developments.


In collaboration with the Ministry of Education in Barbados, the Commonwealth of Learning (COL) is assisting member states of the Commonwealth to work collaboratively on the development of a free education curriculum that can be adapted and modified for local contexts and can be used freely without any restrictions.

In support of this international collaboration, COL assists participating countries by providing a free hosted service to work collaboratively online (www.wikieducator.org) in conjunction with capacity building workshops, to help member countries in using the technology.

The Learning4Content Learning4Content project under which the planned workshop is being conducted, is likely the world's largest attempt to develop wiki skills for education. In 2008, this ambitious and empowering project aims to:

  • conduct 160 workshops
  • train 2500 teachers/educators
  • develop 2500 lessons of free content
  • reach educators in at least 52 Commonwealth Countries.

The workshop includes officially nominated country representative, to join our first regional Learning4Content workshop in the Caribbean, held at the Computer Training Facility, Audio Visual Aids Department, at the Ministry of Education & Human Resource Development, in Bridgetown, Barbados, from Monday, November 3, to Wednesday, November 5, 2008 (to conclude at lunch time).

The Ministry of Education in Barbados has kindly offered to arrange the transportation from/to the airport in Bridgetown, and a liaison person will be at the airport, to meet and greet you, to transport you to your hotel. Your hotel accommodation includes breakfast.
