Wikiversity is a new free online university that brings together a metacommunity of learners and teachers by making use of MediaWiki software. Wikiversity could become much more than "yet another university" - it has the potential for rethinking the mode of education itself, or, at least, for furthering the model of collaborative education that is taking hold of the progressive educative community.
A new learning model: Collaborative learning (or, variously, "cohort learning", "constructivist learning" etc.) is increasingly seen as a key factor in increasing participation and motivation in courses, both off and online.
