Week 2: Editing basics

Professor Ruppel also realizes it’s important to get her students editing Wikipedia right away so they become familiar with the MediaWiki markup language. She knows there are several options: teaching this material herself, having a trusted and trained Wikipedia volunteer teach it, or contacting the teaching and technology center on campus to ask for their assistance. She knows a volunteer in the area who has visited other classes, so she opts to utilize the skills of a campus volunteer.

The volunteer gives an introduction to:

  • Editing basics
  • The anatomy of a Wikipedia article, and what makes a good article
  • Tips on how to find the best articles to work on for the assignment
  • Who the Online Ambassadors are who will also be helping the students on-wiki.
