==== Description: ====
The SELF Platform is an international project with support from European
Commission in which currently seven partners from seven countries are
involved.  It aims to be produce a collaborative platform for authoring
training and learning material. SELF is an acronym for "Science, Education
and Learning in Freedom".

The SELF Platform will have two main functions. It will be simultaneously a
knowledge base and a collaborative production facility: On the one hand, it
will provide information, educational and training materials that can be
presented in different languages and forms: from course texts, presentations,
e-learning programmes and platforms to tutor software, e-books, instructional
and educational videos and manuals. On the other hand, it will offer a
platform for the evaluation, adaptation, creation and translation of these
materials. The production process of such materials will be based on the
organisational model of Wikipedia.

This software project is akin to what Wikimedia is to Wikipedia. The users of
this software can be any educational or training institute that intends to run
an online distributed collaborative authoring and learning service.

==== Other Software Required: ====
