Wikipedia turned out to be an incredibly cost effective way to share knowledge. So let’s do it again – for learning.
Now we can build a similar searchable, crowd sourced system for sharing learning. This open, collaborative project aims to “recycle” learning by having students create online learning materials. Instead of doing an assignment for a teacher, having that work graded and then tossed in the bin (as trash or “waste”), work can be submitted to the online public as free, open education resources – like Wikipedia, but for learning.
