In this one-semester course in Technical Communication, students learn the value of writing accurate, well-researched pieces for all kinds of audiences. The WikiEdu lessons on researching, editing, and sharing accurate information are very efficient and motivating. While not all students choose to create a new Wikipedia page, all of them get the basic training to become productive Wikipedians.
