This form is for organizations receiving Annual Plan Grants to report on their results to date. For progress reports, the time period for this report will the first 6 months of each grant (e.g. 1 January - 30 June of the current year). For impact reports, the time period for this report will be the full 12 months of this grant, including the period already reported on in the progress report (e.g. 1 January - 31 December of the current year). This form includes four sections, addressing global metrics, program stories, financial information, and compliance. Please contact APG/FDC staff if you have questions about this form, or concerns submitting it by the deadline. After submitting the form, organizations will also meet with APG staff to discuss their progress.

Global metrics overview - all programs[edit]

We are trying to understand the overall outcomes of the work being funded across our grantees' programs. Please use the table below to let us know how your programs contributed to the Global Metrics. We understand not all Global Metrics will be relevant for all programs, so feel free to put "0" where necessary. For each program include the following table and

  1. Next to each required metric, list the outcome achieved for all of your programs included in your proposal.
  2. Where necessary, explain the context behind your outcome.
  3. In addition to the Global Metrics as measures of success for your programs, there is another table format in which you may report on any OTHER relevant measures of your programs success

For more information and a sample, see Global Metrics.

Overall[edit]

Metric Achieved outcome Explanation

Telling your program stories - all programs[edit]

Please tell the story of each of your programs included in your proposal. This is your chance to tell your story by using any additional metrics (beyond global metrics) that are relevant to your context, beyond the global metrics above. You should be reporting against the targets you set at the beginning of the year throughout the year. We have provided a template here below for you to report against your targets, but you are welcome to include this information in another way. Also, if you decided not to do a program that was included in your proposal or added a program not in the proposal, please explain this change. More resources for storytelling are at the end of this form. Here are some ways to tell your story.

  • We encourage you to share your successes and failures and what you are learning. Please also share why are these successes, failures, or learnings are important in your context. Reference learning patterns or other documentation.
  • Make clear connections between your offline activities and online results, as applicable. For example, explain how your education program activities is leading to quality content on Wikipedia.
  • We encourage you to tell your story in different ways by using videos, sound files, images (photos and infographics, e.g.), compelling quotes, and by linking directly to work you produce. You may highlight outcomes, learning, or metrics this way.
  • We encourage you to continue using dashboards, progress bars, and scorecards that you have used to illustrate your progress in the past, and to report consistently over time.
  • You are welcome to use the table below to report on any metrics or measures relevant to your program. These may or may not include the global metrics you put in the overview section above. You can also share your progress in another way if you do not find a table like this useful.

GROWTH: How did your entity grow over the past quarter vs. the previous quarter (e.g., Number of active editors reached/involved/added, number of articles created, number of events held, number of partipants reached through workshops)?

  • New users through chapter activities: (these are confirmed, probably many more during edit-a-thons and workshops which were not tracked)

  • Number of events held (edit-a-thons, workshops, seminars, presentations): 29
  • New chapter members: 10
  • New likes on Facebook page: 43 (Total 756)

Financial summary[edit]

The FDC requires information about how your entity received and spent money over the past year. The FDC distributes general funds, so your entity is not required to use funds exactly as outlined in the proposal. While line-item expenses will not be examined, the FDC and movement wants to understand why the entity spent money in the way it did. If variance in budgeted vs. actual is greater than 20%, please provide explanation in more detail. This helps the FDC understand the rationale behind any significant changes. Note that any changes from the Grant proposal, among other things, must be consistent with the WMF mission, must be for charitable purposes as defined in the grant agreement, must be reported to WMF, and must otherwise comply with the grant agreement. The WMF mission is "to empower and engage people around the world to collect and develop educational content under a free license or in the public domain, and to disseminate it effectively and globally."

Progress toward this year's goals/objectives[edit]

This section addresses the impact of the programs / initiatives* and objectives your entity has implemented over the past quarter and the progress your entity is making toward meeting this year's goals. We understand that some metrics may not be applicable in this quarterly report, so please add metrics here if they are applicable.

*In the past, the FDC has used the term 'initiative', but we are using the term 'program.'

Community support[edit]

What are the objectives of this program? Please include metrics.
  • Getting more underrepresented groups into the projects
  • Increasing editors' satisfaction
Progress against these objectives (include metrics and # of volunteers/staff involved)?
  • A few bot-users that have never met before got the chance to talk face to face.
Activities conducted.
  • Wiki meetup in Jönköping.
  • Meeting for bot-users.
  • Photohunt in Mölndal (images pending upload)
  • We lent our conference room to volunteers that arranged a screening in the Nordic Creative Commons film festival (event page)
  • Wiki meetups initiated by the chapter
    • in Kalmar (5 users)
    • in Lund (7 users)
    • in Uppsala (5 users)
  • A volunteer had a booth at the Culture night in Hedemora with the help of equipment from our technology pool. He started a blog and made a great evaluation (in Swedish).
  • 11 volunteers attended the Gothenburg book fair, where all costs were covered from our community driven projects. Focus were mainly to take photos of authors and since the theme this year was Romania coordination were done with ro.wp. Commons category (401 images). Blog post in English.
  • Women's workshop in Malmö
  • Photo accreditations
  • The technology pool was used 13 times in Q3.
  • We asked around to see if there were interest in doing more aerial photography in the community and got a overwhelming positive response. Photo courses and flying tours are planned for October.
  • One user who got some reference litterature in August added 21 references with it in September.
What worked and what did not?
  • We are still waiting for data from the 2012 Editor Survey. It will serve as a baseline for the gender balance on the Swedish Wikipedia for the Women on Wikipedia project and as a baseline for the satisfaction index on the users in the Wiki meetup tour project. We are also supposed to use the 2013 survey as a measure of success, however it seems unclear if there is one in the pipeline.
  • Having meetings for experienced bot-users gave a more efficient way to get a structure on the challenges ahead than what could have done through the talk pages.
  • Having the technology pool heavily used puts demands on recording who has what piece of equipment. We developed a new but simple signing system on wiki, accompanied by a whiteboard next to the equipment to make it easy to remember to update it.

Free knowledge in education[edit]

Free knowledge in education
What are the objectives of this program? Please include metrics.
  • Wikipedia is used as a teaching tool in education
  • Pupils, students and teachers contribute free knowledge
  • Teachers present the projects to be used as a resource for the pupils and students
Progress against these objectives (include metrics and # of volunteers/staff involved)?
  • Workshop for 21 educators where they were taught the basics of Wikipedia, what it is and how it works. The main focus was on how they can use it with their pupils, how they can follow their work and document it.
  • Our board member Ylva Pettersson was awarded second prize in The Innovative Teacher Award, an international award founded by Microsoft, for her and her students' work with creating articles, videos, music and photos for Wikipedia in a project on local history. Articles about the project can be found e.g in the Teacher's Magazine Skolvärlden: http://www.skolvarlden.se/artiklar/hon-anvander-wikipedia-att-ge-eleverna-en-miljonpublik
  • More and more teachers are using Wikipedia in one way or another, and it feels that they are more curious than skeptical in comparison to a year ago.
Activities conducted.
  • The movie we have created got transcripted and translated by us to English and Chinese. After that, it has received translations in French, Portugese, Malay, Indonesian, Norwegian and Catalan.
  • Workshop with educators in Trosa.
  • Kick-off for our Swedish for Immigrants project in Gothenburg. 3 teachers were introduced to the project.
  • A volunteer started working part time (40 %) with developing our educational material for our Education program.
  • Discussions about the launch of the Swedish version of Wikimini took off.
  • Workshop for two classes at Stagneliusgymnasiet in Kalmar. (50 attending) Two half day workshops were organized in Kalmar with circa 50 high school students. The students will travel to Uganda and write articles about the country and illustrate it with photos and videos. The cooperation with the teacher also led to a joint application for funding for two former students to travel to Uganda as volunteers to teach students there to edit Wikipedia. This was a joint application together with a Ugandian organization and the WWF.
  • Two students from Kalmar, the ones that hopefully are going to Uganda to teach students there, are looking into the Wikipedia ambassador program.
  • Workshop with school librarians in Stockholm. (8 attending)
  • We led at a workshop at Lund University with circa 30 participating researchers, communicators and librarians. The group was very positive and two of the participants came up and said that they would try to include Wikipedia in their classes. One librarian also stated that she had gathered a large number of documents that she would like to spread through Wikisource. (30 attending)
  • Three presentations at the Gothenburg book fair. (>425 attending)
  • A teacher, has stepped forward and asked to work as a volunteer on the project up to 16 hours per week. He is helping with updating the instruction material on how to contribute on Wikipedia (with new texts about VisualEditor complete with screen shots and screen casts) and with translations for the Wikimini project. He is already a Wikipedia ambassador.
  • One class used Wiki loves monuments as a tool to learn and photograph their local cultural heritage, led by our board member Ylva Pettersson.
  • Swedish for immigrants on Wikipedia
    • Twenty volunteers from eleven language versions signed up for working with us in our Swedish for Immigrants project.
    • We had a follow-up workshop with two SFI teachers in Malmö and one of their pupils where they could ask technical questions and get help moving forward.
    • Presentation for the Swedish for Immigrants teachers in Malmö. (30 attending)
    • Volunteers added Albanian and Macedonian to the list of articles to work with.
  • A new project to find Champions for freer licenses in Open Access was started.
What worked and what did not?
  • Creation of accounts need to be considered when you have large workshops. We brought this up for discussion and got a good response. This led to a Bugzilla about enabling bureaucrats on svwp to be able to handle that.
  • We are already seeing positive effects of the Visual Editor in workshops. People get around to do their first edits more quickly and the "scared reaction" does not happen.

Free knowledge awareness[edit]

Free knowledge awareness
Boxes of brochures.
What are the objectives of this program? Please include metrics.
  • Make policy makers and institutions aware of the advantages of free knowledge.
Progress against these objectives (include metrics and # of volunteers/staff involved)?
  • The Free public information brochure has been delivered to all 349 Members of Parliament.
  • It has also been sent out to 61 different Government agencies, one (Music Development and Heritage Sweden) has already requested more copies and the digital file.
  • 12 other organisations received the brochure.
  • Wikimedia Sverige and Wikipedia were named five times in the governmental budget proposition for 2014. There, state museums and archives describe their past activities and future plans and name benefits of free licensing, the presence of Wikipedia and cooperation with Wikimedia Sverige on e.g. digitization and outreach.
Activities conducted.
  • The survey to the Members of Parliament about their knowledge and use of Wikipedia were translated to English. The survey was also presented on Almedalsveckan, the big happening in Swedish politics every summer.
  • The survey to the Members of Parliament was also presented at Wikimania.
  • The brochures on Free public information arrived from the printer. We have started distributing it and the Members of Parliament will get their individual copy when they are back after the summer. It is translated to English and ready for more translations on meta. We delivered the brochure on free public information to all 349 Members of Parliament. The brochure was also sent to 9 of the best known think tanks in Sweden.
  • See also presentations at Wikimania described under Content Liberation and Reader participation above.


What worked and what did not?
  • Unfortunately the presentation in Almedalsveckan was not very well attended. Only one volunteer went and while we got the seminar room for free we got no help in advertising for it. The competition is very hard and if we would go again we should either have a bigger team or a stronger and more interested partner, preferably both.

Lessons learned[edit]

Lessons from this quarter[edit]

A key objective of the funding is to enable the movement as a whole to understand how to achieve shared goals better and faster. An important way of doing this is to identify lessons learned from entities who receive funds, and to share these lessons across the movement. The purpose of this section is to elicit some of these insights, which will be shared throughout the movement. Please answer the following questions in 1–2 paragraphs each.

What were your major accomplishments in the past quarter, and how did you help to achieve movement goals?

  • Finding a volunteer who wants to dedicate 40% time to the Education Program.
  • Drafting the program plan for the next year.
  • Getting mentioned in the Financial Bill (Budget proposal for parliament for 2014 by the Government). This official recognition will be of help in all projects we do.

What were your major setbacks in the past quarter (e.g., programs that were not successful)?

  • No major setbacks in Q3.

What factors (organizational, environmental) enabled your success?

  • That we do not only work on short-term projects, but put a lot of effort into collaborations on long-term is a major part of this months success.

What unanticipated challenges did you encounter and how did this affect what you were able to accomplish?

  • The uncertainty if there is going to be an Editor survey 2013 will make us figure out new ways in measuring our progress in our Women on Wikipedia project.

What changes might you make in executing your initiatives into the next quarter?

  • The fact that the summer is over, schools are starting and we all are back from vacations means that the major change will be that we are up to full speed again.
  • Q4 will be characterized by several large projects coming to an end (Europeana Awareness, Wiki skills and Open database for Public art), and there will be more focus on evaluation.

Additional information[edit]

Provide any other relevant information that may be helpful or relevant for the FDC (e.g., links to any media coverage, blog posts, more detailed reports, more detailed financial information).

Sample pictures and movies from Q3.
