School and university projects

Post  msistarted on Fri Oct 22, 2010 11:29 pm

Everyone is welcome here. If you're a professor, teacher, or student within the college community, we encourage you to use Wikipedia in your course to demonstrate how an open content website works. Many of these projects have resulted in both advancing the students' knowledge and useful content being added to Wikipedia. An advantage of this over regular homework is that the student is dealing with a real world situation, which is not only more educational but also makes it more interesting ("the world gets to see my work"), possibly resulting in increased dedication. Besides, it will give the students a chance to collaborate on course notes and papers, and their effort might remain online for reference, instead of being discarded and forgotten as is usual with paper coursework, or classroom systems which are routinely reinitialized. We offer some best practices guidelines to support educational and academic projects.

The classroom coordination project exists to provide guidance to educators who incorporate Wikipedia writing assignments into their classes. Feel free to post questions for experienced Wikipedia volunteers at the talk page. Please, share your experiences with us and give some feedback to support the optimizing of the school and university projects Smile
