  Wikibooks - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Wikibooks, previously called Wikimedia Free Textbook Project and Wikimedia-Textbooks, is part of the Wikimedia Foundation.
Started on July 10, 2003, the project is a collection of free textbooks, manuals, and other texts that are written collaboratively on the website.
There are two subprojects within Wikibooks: Wikijunior and Wikiversity.

 Wikisource:Wikisource and Wikibooks - Wikisource
Wikibooks are new texts written collaboratively by the contributors themselves in wiki fashion.
Several source-texts are hosted at Wikibooks which contain annotations, or which are planned to have them in the future (such as the works of Shakespeare).
As long as the major goal of the project matches Wikibooks or Wikisource, that should be enough.

Yet because of Wikibooks' digital model, in which material written for the project can be as short or as long as needed, and be easily manipulated, read and edited, Wales and others believe it can pose a major challenge to the publishing industry's hold on the world of textbooks.
The hope is that by turning the Wikibooks keys over to a worldwide community of writers and editors, the project will eventually contain tens of thousands of books and smaller entries on a wide range of topics.
Brewer also hopes Wikibooks opens up a new kind of learning opportunity for students because it leverages the power of digital information that is instantly modified and easily researched.

 Bud the Teacher: Podcast: Moodle and Wikibooks on Thursday evening
On Thursday night, on the way home from parent night at school, I recorded this podcast about some of what we're doing with Moodle right now, some of what I wish Moodle could do, and also some of my thoughts about the EducationBridges work to create wikibooks.
A nasty virus and the weekend kept me from posting it until now.
