If you are already running a student assignment:
- Do you already have a course page that the Wikipedia community knows about? Because you should! It's a way for a class to begin to integrate into the editing community. They can be a simple wiki-list that you note at the education noticeboard or you can use Wikipedia's specialized software for course pages. If this sounds too difficult, just please post a record of your students and which articles they'll be editing at the education noticeboard. Course pages which use the software are in the "Education Program:" namespace; they are listed at Special:Courses.
- If you want to begin using the "Education Program:" namespace — which provides a tool to monitor class activity and track where your students are editing — you can post a request for the course instructor user right to access the system. Just tell us about your course, how much you know about Wikipedia and if you have any questions, and what kind of assignment your students will be doing.
