Those of you involved in higher education may be interested in ORCID. ORCID is an open system of identifiers for people - particularly researchers and the authors of academic papers; but also contributors to other works, not least Wikipedia editors. ORCIDs are a bit like ISBNs for books or DOIs for papers. You can register for one, free, at As well as including your ORCID in any works to which you contribute, you can include it in your user page using {{Authority control}} thus: {{Authority control|ORCID=0000-0001-5882-6823}} (that template can also include other identifies, such as VIAF and LCCN - there's an example on my user page). ORCID identifiers can also be added to biographical articles, either directly or via Wikidata. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 12:20, 17 May 2014 (UTC)

Request for comments, help[edit]

Please take a look at the open learning article, which is of interest to both WikiProject Education and WikiProject Open. There seems enough convergence between open learning and open education to consider whether the two should be merged into one article. To weigh in, go to WT:OPEN. —Litjade (talk) 21:20, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

I've open this topic for discussion on the Open education talk page. —Litjade (talk) 13:27, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

collegeatlas, reliable source ?[edit]

Hi People.I wanted to have your opinion on collegeatlas. I have just found out that the education part of Khazakstan was almost a copy/past from this website and I am wondering if it is really reliable... It looks quite notable, but the process of publication seems rather unclear and makes me suspicious: No author, no dates, no formal sources("collegeatlas relies on feedback from schools, education professionals and students to help keep content up to date and accurate.")... Does someone know this website ? Does it have its place on wikipedia ? KaptainIgloo (talk) 13:46, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

Leaflet For Wikiproject Education At Wikimania 2014(updated version)[edit]

Please note: This is an updated version of a previous post that I made.

Project Leaflet WikiProject Medicine back and front v1.png

Hi all,

My name is Adi Khajuria and I am helping out with Wikimania 2014 in London.

One of our initiatives is to create leaflets to increase the discoverability of various wikimedia projects, and showcase the breadth of activity within wikimedia. Any kind of project can have a physical paper leaflet designed - for free - as a tool to help recruit new contributors. These leaflets will be printed at Wikimania 2014, and the designs can be re-used in the future at other events and locations.

This is particularly aimed at highlighting less discoverable but successful projects, e.g:

• Active Wikiprojects: Wikiproject Medicine, WikiProject Video Games, Wikiproject Film

• Tech projects/Tools, which may be looking for either users or developers.

• Less known major projects: Wikinews, Wikidata, Wikivoyage, etc.

• Wiki Loves Parliaments, Wiki Loves Monuments, Wiki Loves ____

• Wikimedia thematic organisations, Wikiwomen’s Collaborative, The Signpost

The deadline for submissions is 1st July 2014
