Wikiwijs is an open educational resources (OER) platform for teachers launched by the Dutch Ministry of Education to 'stimulate development and use of OER', 'improve access to both open and 'closed' digital learning materials', 'support teachers in arranging their own learning materials and professionalization', and to 'increase teacher involvement in development and use of OER.' Wikiwijs builds on the wiki philosophy of Wikipedia but customizes an existing OER platform, Connexions, to host and distribute its content. Wikiwijs is focused on all levels of education, from primary to higher education. All content on Wikiwijs is available under CC BY.
