  2. Hello my name is arun
    I am doing one opensource project from last two years contents and code is purley licenced under creative commons licence i am trying to write one article in wiki from last few months but it is getting deleted again and again

    I am looking support from this community to place that article in place

    It is basically is an open learning system. And how do you benefit? With an open learning system, a database of notes and study materials from many different branches of education are at your disposal to provide good quality study material, as supplied by learners and if we’re fortunate, lecturers as well. This can reduce the cost of books by 86.5%. Open library is an online library management system with a global index. When using this system learners can avoid the time they need to spend at the library browsing books. This can also be effective travel, as people and the libraries can exchange the books among them as per their interest. Review is editable by everyone so that there will be a good review will be formed. Librarians are able to communicate with users so that the loss of books can be avoided. Who is responsible for this? Eduladder is a group of teachers, programmers, students and people like you, who believe education should be free and accessible for everyone. We believe the cost of education can be reduced through technology, so we have dedicated our youth to sustaining and developing an open learning system and by using creative commons license so assure the commercial use of data is avoided legally.
