Serlo.org depends on the cooperation of its dedicated authors - the community. All content can be edited and every edit is checked by one of our more experienced members of the community before they are put online.

We are working on improving and expanding the tutorials and guidelines every week. Please help us doing this by giving feedback at the bottom of this page. Thank you!
