== Чем Викиверситет не является ==
* '''A place to confer titles''': Wikiversity does not provide for participants to call themselves a "professor" just by starting or leading a section of its content. If you are a professor in real life (TM), you are free to call yourself such, but Wikiversity does not allow for people to make up their own titles.
*'''A degree-granting institution''': Wikiversity does not currently confer academic degrees/diplomas/certificates etc.
*'''A duplication of other Wikimedia projects'''. While Wikiversity complements other Wikimedia projects, it will not simply duplicate their content. So, if you want to read about a topic, you may be better off visiting, say, [[w:|Wikipedia]] or [[b:|Wikibooks]], but if you want to learn about this topic, you can do so at Wikiversity. Learning materials will be created and used on Wikiversity, but materials on other projects may also be used as learning materials themselves or even places to consolidate this learning, i.e. writing an article, manual, etc. based on what you've learned. There may be some overlapping, but each project will maintain its own focus.
*'''A post-secondary institution'''. Wikiversity will not confine itself to "higher" or "third" level materials, but rather develop materials for all age groups. It is a university in the sense of a transnational community of teachers, learners, and researchers ("universitas magistrorum et scholarium") dedicated to lifelong learning.
*'''An advertising platform'''. Wikiversity makes a distinction between:
*: a) creating or linking to useful [[learning resource]]s for exploring products that might be useful to learners and
*: b) allowing Wikiversity pages to be used to advertise commercialized products.
*: Please respect the educational mission of Wikiversity. If you want to practice self-promotion, discuss a commercialized product or a personal or commercial website then respect the need to present your information in the form of an objective and informative learning resource. If you do not know what this means, expect Wikiversity participants to flag your contributions as [[Wikiversity:Deletion policy|unwelcome advertisements]].
*'''An advocacy platform'''. Wikiversity makes a distinction between:
*: a) creating or linking to useful [[learning resource]]s for exploring different views and opinions that might be useful to learners and
*: b) aggressively advocating any personal views or opinions. Users should refrain from disrupting Wikiversity or bringing the project into [[wikt:disrepute|disrepute]] in order to advance or prove specific points. Note that this should not be construed to bar reasonable criticism of any topic or criticism of the project itself.
*: Please respect the educational mission of Wikiversity. If you want to advocate your [[WV:NPOV|personal views]] then respect the need to present your views in the form of an objective and informative learning resource. If you do not know what this means, expect Wikiversity participants to flag your contributions as [[Wikiversity:Deletion policy|unwelcome disruption]].
