University? Why Bother--There's Wikiversity!

Cameron Dolcourt '04 pointed out this project on Wikipedia to create a "Wikiversity, where "we work to make a fun and productive learning environment that supports the learning goals of our participants." As an example, here's the "Political Science School". Interesting idea, though by the looks of it I don't think it's going to put us out of business any time soon. I could see this being useful in creating online technical manuals of sorts that draw on users' particular experiences, tips and tricks.
