The Digital Universe Project and Foundation is a growing, international consortium of non-profit organizations who seek to make available on the Internet the best educational, scientific and cultural information.
The Digital Universe is:
- Organizing expert-reviewed information into a web of related Internet portals and subportals.
- Providing simple but powerful tools for scholars and educators to author and publish original, multi-media content online.
- Nurturing online communities around Digital Universe topics that will engage the public for educational and social networking purposes. The content creation and portal building tools mentioned above will be made available free to the public to support communities of interest and action in the “neighborhood” of Digital Universe portals. As an example, amateur astronomers and astronomy clubs can homestead around the expert-created Cosmos Portal.
