WikiEducator    WikiEducator is a community project working collaboratively with the Free Culture Movement towards a free version of the education curriculum by 2015. Driven by the learning for development agenda we focus on:   building capacity in the use of Mediawiki and related free software technologies for mass-collaboration in the authoring of free content;    developing free content for use in schools, polytechnics, universities, vocational education institutions and informal education settings;    facilitating the establishment of community networks and collaboration with existing free content initiatives in education;    fostering new technologies that will widen access, improve quality and reduce the cost associated with providing education, primarily through the use of free content.
