Whyville is a site where millions of registered "citizens" come from all over to learn, create, and have fun together. Whyville is their world. Whyville has places to go, things to do, and of course, people to see. Whyville has its own newspaper, its own Senators, its own beach, museum, City Hall and town square, its own suburbia, and even its own economy - citizens earn "clams" by playing educational games.

Developed by the University of Berkeley with multiple partners through NSF funding, Project WISE used knowledge integrated learning environments research to develop learning modules or units. Teachers can establish a class and provide access to their students. The system records student comments, work, evidence and observations and provides a report back to the teacher. There are around 50 units for teacher access.
