Wikividya is a multilingual, open source, free content repository project, supported by eVidyaloka, based on a model of openly editable content. The name ‘Wikividya’ is coined from the Hawaiian word wiki, (meaning 'quick') vidya (meaning 'knowledge') and eVidyaloka.

Wikividya is written collaboratively by largely anonymous volunteers who write without pay. Anyone with Internet access can write and make changes to Wikividya content, except in limited cases where editing is restricted to prevent disruption or vandalism. Users can contribute anonymously, under a pseudonym, or, if they choose to, with their real identity.

Wikividya is continually updated, with content on different chapters of different grades for subjects of varied state boards. In addition to quantity, its contributors work on improving quality as well. Wikividya is a work-in-progress project, with chapters in various stages of completion. As the contents develop, they tend to become more comprehensive and balanced. Quality also improves over time as misinformation and other errors are removed or edited.
