WikiToLearn is a platform where you can create and refine notes, lecture notes and even whole text books; a place where you can share and find high-quality material that follows university courses, topics and approaches. Our philosophy is in two simple sentences: “Knowledge only grows if shared” and we want you/students to “Stand on the shoulders of giants!”.
WikiToLearn is a tool where content retrieval is made easy. You can easily export professionally laid out PDFs, merge text and recombine content fast (obtain only what you need and how you need it). Gathering valued content from every user is simple, too. Content reliability is guaranteed by a integrated peer-review system and a wiki (fast) method for mistake corrections.
The core objectives of WikiToLearn are: Disseminating free, open and easily accessible scientific knowledge. Building a learning and publishing platform for high-quality content, created collaboratively. Integrating and collecting many existing resources on the different subjects, found both online and offline.
WikiToLearn is strongly focused on didactical needs and was initially created by the students for the students. Its primary aim is to build a platform that can be used in a study group at the beginning of a course to enhance and share comprehension among classes.
The project is promoted and coordinated by a group of people, who are mainly students and university professors of scientific disciplines, that deal with writing, revising and organizing the published content. WikiToLearn is currently sponsored by Wikimedia Italy and became a KDE project in December 2013.
