Wikiversity is a learning community which aims to further the discovery and distribution of knowledge by helping people to learn and to share learning resources. Users can use Wikiversity to find information, ask questions, or learn more about a subject, to explore knowledge through advanced study and research and also to share their knowledge about a subject with others by building learning materials.
Wikiversity is available in 15 different languages, with a different number of learning resources for every language, varying from a few hundreds to over 20k.
The library of learning materials is growing and contains materials of all types, including a wide variety of multimedia course materials. They are designed, not just for self-study, but also as material which can be used in your classroom.
Everyone can create and revise teaching materials. Anyone can participate in the learning activities. Everyone can take a course. Everyone can teach a course. There are no entrance requirements and no fees. All content in Wikiversity is written collaboratively, using wiki software, and everyone is welcome to take part through using, adding and discussing content.

Since 2010 the publishing program has been expanded to General and Civil Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Materials Sciences and in particular Medicine, Biology and Biotechnology.
InTech is based on the principle of Open Access. It is a publishing model that does not charge readers for accessing scientific publications online. As a consequence, everything published as or in an open access resource is immediately available online for free. All use is fair use so long as the original authors and sources are credited. An Open Access article is more likely to be used and cited than one behind subscription barriers. Submitted works are published by InTech under the Open Access publishing model and Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 license (the author retains the copyright to his/her work and that can use it in any manner.)
All published resources on the website are accessible without registration. It is needed to submit contributions to the website.
