Introduction to the Wikipedia project

 Welcome to your Wikipedia project's course timeline. This page will guide you through the Wikipedia project for your course. Be sure to check with your instructor to see if there are other pages you should be following as well. 


 Your course has also been assigned a Wikipedia Expert. Check your Talk page for notes from them. You can also reach them through the "Get Help" button on this page. 


 To get started, you may review the following handouts: 


Assignment - Create an account and write greetings to a classmate's talk page
  1. Create an account and join this course page, using the enrollment link your instructor sent you. Since it is impossible to create more than 6 accounts using the same IP address, this is something you have to do before or after class. Struggling with creating an account? Look at this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tmIhRyF3Uw0 - Remember that your Wikipedia username does not have to be your actual name.
  2. It's time to dive into Wikipedia. Below, you'll find the first set of online trainings you'll need to take. New modules will appear on this timeline as you get to new milestones. Be sure to check back and complete them! Incomplete trainings will be reflected in your grade. At the minimum, be sure to do the "Translating Articles" training. 
  3. When you finish the trainings, practice by introducing yourself to a classmate on his/her Talk page... in French (2 lines). NB. You can see everyone else in the course by clicking on the Students tab on the Dashboard. There is also a list on Wikipedia between the Contents section and the big gray box at the top of the page. 

Week 2

Course meetings
Monday, 5 March 2018   |   Thursday, 8 March 2018
Assignment - Choose an article
  • Select an article fromthe list prepared by your instructor. Ideally, the article you pick should be related to your (academic) interests. Add it as your assigned article on the course page. First come first serve 
  • 3 students per article with the following exceptions: 

- the Hunter College page, for which you may be up to six;

- Mina Rees' and Vivian E. Browne's pages are very short: 2 students for each of them will be enough (unless some of you feel up to do research and expand their page - let your instructor know if you're interested)
- On the other hand, Pauli Murray's and Arlie Petters' pages are quite lengthy: you may be up to 4 working on each of them. 


Supplementary trainings:


  • [[../../../training/students/sources|Sources and Citations]]
  • [[../../../training/students/sandboxes|Sandboxes and Mainspace]]
Assignment - Begin to write French version - Team coordination
  • Copy the part of the article from the English-language Wikipedia into your sandbox.
  • Begin to work on your French version. You are not expected to translate word by word. Focus on what you deem the most notable information (we'll discuss this in class). 
  • Make sure to coordinate with the classmates working on your article as well, in order to avoid overlapping and information gaps: for each article, make sure to decide who works on what collaboratively. The simplest way to do so on Wikipedia is for you to use the talk page of your sandbox (or user's page). Avoid using articles' talk pages to coordinate. Coordonnez-vous en français s'il vous plaît :) 
  • I encourage you to email me a sentence you are struggling with by Monday, March 12th class, so we work on it together in class. 

Week 3

Assignment - First draft - French Writing & Team Coordination



  • Hand in a hard copy of your first draft (sandbox version) to your instructor in class on March, 15th. In addition to individually assess your French writing, your instructor will take into account how you, as a team, coordinated your work (again, pay attention to overlappings and information gaps)
  • Specify word count. Your instructor did not assign specific word count because the latter will necessarily vary depending on which article you've been working on. However, she will take into account word count when grading your work. Indeed, it is understandable that you made more mistakes if you translated more, just like it is understandable that you made more mistakes if you translated a more difficult part (see the example we discussed in class: translating Arlie Petters' Biography vs. Research). 
  • Don't bother with sources and references for this first draft: you'll add them to your revised draft. However, keep in mind Wikipédia's "5 pillars" ("principes fondateurs"): any information your draft provides should be sourced (no original work). Stick to sourced information available on the English page (unless you feel like doing extra research of course). 

Week 4

Course meetings
Monday, 19 March 2018   |   Thursday, 22 March 2018
Assignment - Correcting your first draft

Once your instructor returned the hard copy of your first draft, follow the revisions and/or instructions provided and make corrections in your sandbox
Learning from your mistakes is an instrumental part of this assignment. Please note that not taking into account the corrections made on your first draft will affect your final grade. Feel free to reach your instructor out with any question. 





Week 5

Course meetings
Monday, 26 March 2018   |   Thursday, 29 March 2018
Assignment - Reviewing your sandbox
  • Reminder: Once your instructor returned the hard copy of your first draft, follow the revisions and/or instructions provided and make corrections in your sandbox

Learning from your mistakes is an instrumental part of this assignment. Please note that not taking into account the corrections made on your first draft will affect your final grade. Feel free to reach your instructor out with any question. 

  • Your instructor will review your revised draft as it will appear in your sandbox on March, 30th in the morning. She will do final corrections if needed. Please note that not taking into account the corrections made on your first draft will affect your final grade. 
  • Once this is done, she'll write on your sandbox' talk page "bon pour publication".  See further instructions in the ppt of March 29th class. 

Week 6

Course meetings
Monday, 9 April 2018   |   Thursday, 12 April 2018
Assignment - Publish your Work - Team Coordination
  • Once your instructor left on your user's talk page "bon pour publication", move sandbox articles into main space (See further instructions on balises in ppt of March 29th class).  Make sure to coordinate your work with the classmates working on the same article, so your whole article looks coherent. 
  • It's time to add your revised translation (including sources, when available). Copy your edit into the article. If you are making many small edits, save after each edit before you make the next one. Do NOT paste over the entire existing article. Be sure to check the article's talk page and respond to suggestions from Wikipedians. Don't panic if your edits are removed or changed! Discuss it civilly on the article's talk page, and make a note of it for your report or presentation about your editing experience.
  • Here are the link to the French stubs (ébauches) where to post your final version: 



Week 7

Course meetings
Monday, 16 April 2018   |   Thursday, 19 April 2018
Assignment - Final report and class discussion

Prepare a short individual written essay, and an oral group work conversation on your experience on Wikipedia, i.e the article you worked on, the tranlating process and/or your experience on Wikipedia (en français). 

Your instructor will share with you a Google Doc providing schedule and specifics. 

Milestones

Students have finished all their work on Wikipedia that will be considered for grading.
