Wiki-ed, . . .
a user-created, specialized encyclopedia about education as a domain of academic inquiry, will do for the 21st-century what Cyclopedia of Education did for the 20th. Wiki-ed will largely use the policies and guidelines that have evolved for Wikipedia, although with a few adjustments to take account of its specialized concern with education. Much content in Wiki-ed should find its way into Wikipedia and whether Wiki-ed will endure as a separate, more specialized digital encyclopedia will depend on how it develops. Wiki-ed will serve its purpose even if it quickly submerges into the ever-growing Wikipedia, for its purpose is to motivate and organize useful intellectual effort.
Wikipedia has specialist groups within it working to expand and improve the contributions in the areas of their interest, including one on education. Aspects of the Wikipedia ethos make it hard for these groups to convene and sustain themselves and the complexity of the educational world challenges such work. Educational activity has spawned a vast compexity of institutions and actors, creating a dense jungle of potential Wikipedia articles. The Wiki-ed project can provide a basis for attracting, motivating, and organizing creative effort. A learning community can organize itself and thrive by developing a robust, professionally useful Wiki-ed, treating education at the highest possible intellectual standard.
