Matt Scherer set up this wiki as part of the surplus-value.org in order to support and extend student learning in his courses at George Mason University including but not limited to the program in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics.

Other parts of the idea are: To use technologies that can be mastered and re-used in a variety of contexts. To use tools that are not wretched and miserable to use. To move away from canned 'assignments' and tasks and toward an engaged collective endeavor in learning within the context of university level courses.
The courses to be supplemented by this wiki project include:
