Today we reviewed the Wikipedia readings and shared thoughts on the reliability and biases of Wikipedia. We spent some time creating (or trying to) Wikipedia accounts and explored the training modules and Creative Commons licenses. For Wednesday, please create a Wikipedia account and send your username to Prof. Leonard via email or the OpenLab. You can then begin the training modules:
Contributing Images and Media Files
On Wednesday our guest lecturers, Prof. Ann Matsuuchi from LaGuardia Community College, and Richard Knipel, president of the Wikimedia Foundation NYC Chapter, will lead us on a workshop on writing, editing, referencing, and creating images in Wikipedia. Bring your questions and a laptop if you like.
