Wikieducator has provided an on-ramp for my students to open sharing of knowledge. The community has welcomed approximately 100 of my undergraduate students to their ranks and encouraged their participation in this bold experiment. By developing lesson plans online, an enduring contribution has replaced what would otherwise have been a large number of traditional term papers. Participation in this project has engaged trainee teachers in a truly international community and encouraged them to share resources in a manner unprecedented in my previous teaching experience. Supporting the WE platform will perpetuate this model of information sharing and encourage future educators to share resources freely."
