re: University of Pittsburgh library project
Sadly, I left Pittsburgh a year ago, and unfortunately, despite some attempts, I failed to train a successor. I tried to offer a Wikipedia workshop to CIDDE but they were not interested. The best I can offer you is that there's a professor at CMU who is somewhat familiar with teaching Wikipedia, Robert Kraut (). Maybe he will be able to help you out. PS. Also ask User:Sageross if he still lives in Pitt area, if he does, he may be able to help. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 15:00, 23 July 2013 (UTC)
- Hi! Just a ping in case you didn't get my reply. I'd be happy to help if I can.--ragesoss (talk) 14:19, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
Change in your user rights
Your Wikipedia account was previously granted a user right called "course instructor" by the Wiki Education Foundation. That right enabled you to create a course page through the EducationProgram MediaWiki extension. Starting in fall 2015, the Wiki Education Foundation has discontinued its use of this extension. Going forward, users should create course pages through the Wiki Education Foundation website. That application is more user-friendly, and any content is automatically mirrored to Wikipedia. To prevent confusion, we'll be removing your "course instructor" user right, as it is not needed with the new system. This is simply a notification of the technical change to your account. No action is needed from you at this time.
If you plan on teaching with Wikipedia for the fall 2015 term, please email me (helainewikiedu.org) for instructions how to create your next course page using our new system. --Helaine (Wiki Ed) (talk), sent by MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 02:34, 21 July 2015 (UTC)
