Vikidia is an encyclopedia made with a wiki, using mediawiki. Its goal is to be readable by a child from 8 to 13 years old as well as allowing easy comprehension to people learning French, Italian and Spanish.
It has been initiated in November 2006 and has reached 2500 articles in October 2007.
Characteristics[change | edit source]
As in Wikipedia, Vikidia is an open wiki, so everybody is allowed to edit the articles. But Vikidia is also a wiki for children, so all inappropriate or shocking contents are quickly removed by the site's administrators.
Vikidia helps children to contribute, and some schools and teachers have involved their class to write articles as a school project.
