Wikipedia Editing

During the course of the semester, we will contribute to Wikipedia and the Wikimedia Commons and some groups may decide to use Wikipedia as a platform to publish part of their Final Report.

We have a Learning Places Wikiedu course page to track our Wikipedia edits and contributions. All students will set up accounts and learn how to edit and upload media from an experienced Wikipedian.
