Wikiversity – Set learning free — is a linguistic edition 'project', and collection of wiki sites of the Wikimedia Foundation (WMF) in different languages; for the creation and use of free learning materials and activities. Wikiversity is a multi-dimensional centre dedicated to learning, teaching, research, and service. Officially launched 2006, its primary goals are to:

  • Create and host free content, multilingual learning materials, resources, and curricula; for all age groups in all languages;
  • Develop and host collaborative learning projects and communities around these materials;
  • Complement and develop existing Wikimedia projects (e.g. a project devoted to finding good sources for Wikipedia articles).

Written textual content of all versions of Wikiversity wiki sites are made available under two licenses; both open content free licenses, namely: the GNU Free Documentation License (GNU FDL, or GFDL), and the Creative Commons Attribution Share Alike 3.0 Unported license (CC-BY-SA 3.0).[1]

As of November 2021, Wikimedia Meta-Wiki indicates that there are 17 Wikiversities of different languages, plus the Multilingual Wikiversity Beta; this latter also acts as the meta wiki for the entire Wikiversity project, and also as an 'incubator' for proposed future language versions of Wikiversity.

Wikimedia Foundation, Inc. (WMF), founded 20 June 2003, is the wiki company and non-profit charitable organization[2] responsible for a very large number (over 900 in total) of very active wiki sites, which are grouped together by primary subject and known as a 'project'; as well as the wiki engine software initially developed by themselves, known as MediaWiki. The Wikimedia Foundations' major wiki projects started with Wikipedia (encyclopedia), and subsequently expanded to include Wiktionary (dictionary and thesaurus), Wikiquote (quotations), Wikibooks (open content textbooks), Wikisource (free content primary-source and secondary-source texts), Wikinews (news source), Wikiversity (open learning community), Wikispecies (free species directory), and many others as listed below. Most of these 'projects' have separate wiki site versions written in many different languages. There is also the Wikimedia Commons (shared repository for documents, images, videos, and other media and text files), Wikidata (central space knowledge base for data used on all WMF projects), and the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki (coordination of issues common to all Wikimedia projects). The Wikimedia Foundations' global reach is nurtured in its Incubator, where all new language versions for all projects are initiated and developed before being launched as a new separate wiki site. The Foundations' most recent major project, Wikivoyage (a 'travelpedia'), was inducted to WMF in late 2012.

Wikimedia Foundation, Inc. is a member of the Open Source Initiative (OSI). Furthermore, the Wikimedia Foundation is a United States 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, granted April 2005, and headquartered at 1 Montgomery Street, Suite 1600, San Francisco County, State of California 94104, United States of America.[3]
