>if a wikieducator page (and its links) is suitable as a kind of classroom website, where uploading material about courses
and resources for other classrooms and teachers as well
if so, where can i find examples of other WE pages for this goal ?
Absolutely — uploading material and resources for
classrooms and teachers is what WikiEducator is all about — we’re a
community of Educators around the world who are committed to sharing
knowledge and teaching materials freely.
Our only requirement is that the teaching materials we create and upload
must be licensed under a free content license (for example Creative Commons
Attribution or Sharealike licenses.
There are a number of schools starting to create portal pages for uploading
and sharing their teaching materials. Consider for example
– Warrington Primary is an inspirational example of a primary school here
in New Zealand who are dedicated to open education — see:
– Ort Gutman High School in Israel are working on a few OER projects see:
– St Michaels College in Vermont run the Biology for Elementary Schools
Project see: http://wikieducator.org/Biology_in_elementary_schools
– There are country initiatives aimed at developing national repositories
of free content, see for example New Zealand (
http://wikieducator.org/OERNZ ), Uganda (http://wikieducator.org/OERUG),
India (http://wikieducator.org/India), Israel (
We can help you — the OER Foundation provides free training for educators
around the world who want to learn how to do this. We offer at least one
free online training workshop every month under the Learning4Content project
