The Wikimedia Foundation has announced a partnership that will make
it possible to obtain high quality print and word processor copies of
articles from Wikipedia and other wiki educational resources.
The third stage [of this project], planned for mid-2008, will be the addition of the OpenDocument format for word processors to the list of export formats. "Imagine that you want to use a set of wiki articles in the classroom. By supporting the OpenDocument format, we will make it easy for educators to customize and remix content before printing and distributing it from any desktop computer," Sue Gardner explained. This work is funded through a US$40,000 grant by the Open Society Institute.
The technology developed through this cooperation will be
available under an open source license, free for anyone to use for any
purpose. It ties into the MediaWiki platform, the open source
technology that runs Wikipedia. As a result, thousands of wiki
platforms around the world will have the option of providing the same
services to their users."
