Grants:APG/Proposals/2017-2018 round 1/Wikimedia Serbia/Progress report form
Purpose of the report
This form is for organizations receiving Annual Plan Grants to report on their progress after completing the first 6 months of their grants. The time period covered in this form will be the first 6 months of each grant (e.g. 1 January - 30 June of the current year). This form includes four sections, addressing grant 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.
Metrics and results overview - all programs
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 Grant Metrics. We understand not all Grant or grantee-defined Metrics will be relevant for all programs, so feel free to put "0" where necessary. For each program include the following table and
- Next to each required metric, list the outcome/results achieved for all of your programs included in your proposal.
- Where necessary, explain the context behind your outcome.
- 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 Grant Metrics. Explanation of grantee defined metrics:
- No. of new files used on Wikipedia - the number of multimedia files that were used to illustrate Wikipedia articles.
- No. of partnerships - these metrics imply the number of accomplished collaborations with educational institutions and cultural institutions, as well as non-governmental organizations within the projects and activities of Wikimedia Serbia. Cooperation can mean the implementation of various projects in these institutions, the organization of edit-a-thons, workshops, lectures, and exhibitions. We believe that these metrics are important because they show the growth of our programs and the expansion of the network of associates, and therefore affect the greater visibility of our organization and projects.

|Wikipedia in schools
Goal: introducing wiki projects into the academic environment
Description: students are writing seminar papers on Wikipedia or other wiki projects and for this they get points within the course/exam at their school or faculty.
Goal: enabling teachers to independently implement wiki projects in their institution
Description: the project involves the organisation of accredited seminars Application of online wiki tools as didactic tools in teaching and learning in secondary schools throughout Serbia. Seminars are accredited by the Institute for the Advancement of Education (state accreditation body for professional development of teachers) and teachers receive 8 points for professional development by attending it. It consists of all-day workshops on editing Wikipedia and highlighting how to implement wiki projects in teaching and learning. Seminars are intended exclusively for teachers.
Goal: attracting new Wiki ambassadors and Edu volunteers and strengthening ties between them
Description: This camp is organized within the Education program and serves for additional education of current Wiki ambassadors and attracting new ones, as well as strengthening the network of Edu volunteers. The program is diverse and includes education in terms of editing Wikipedia, cooperation with educational institutions, and technical things necessary for the realization of the Education Program.
During the first half of 2018, Wikimedia Serbia renewed cooperation with elementary schools on the project Wiki Pupil. We also started the development of video tutorials for editing Serbian Wikipedia. Beside this, we developed Tutorial for Wiki ambassadors (11 active for the time being) and we have established cooperation with several non-governmental organizations working on education of children and youth. As part of the Wikipedia in schools project, 34 workshops were held in schools and 12,300,000 bytes were uploaded in total. These workshops were held in 24 educational institutions with which we cooperated in the first half of this year.
Work on Wikidata has continued, and the interest in getting involved with Wikidata has been shown by even more partners this year. Two partnerships with educational institutions have also been achieved within the Community Support Program since they applied for annual grants with educational activities.
Wikimedia Serbia also received a new accreditation for the program of professional development of teachers. New accreditation for the "Application of Wiki Tools in Teaching and Learning" program will be valid for the next three school years, until the 31st of August 2021. Within the framework of the current accreditation, six seminars for teachers were held in the first six months of this year, attended by 134 teachers, and they have written 130 articles on Serbian Wikipedia.
These results were presented at the conference New Technologies in Education in 2018 in Belgrade, the Wikimedia Conference in Berlin, the Wikipedia and Academia Conference in Dublin and at the WikiLive Conference, where a very attended roundtable was held on the topic of the Education Program of Wikimedia Serbia. The rest of the results can be found on the Outreach page.
Challenges and lessons learned
By the end of the year, we are planning to complete a part of tutorials for editing Wikipedia, which we are creating in cooperation with the College of Electrical Engineering and Computing. We are going to use these tutorials for educational purposes later on. In the coming weeks, we will work on the preparation of the Edu Wiki Camp, which will have a diverse program. One of our goals is to get new Wiki ambassadors who will spread the Wiki idea and help us in the implementation of new partnerships and the expansion of the entire program. Our plan is to explore the possibility of awarding Wiki ambassadors with additional ECTS points for their volunteer work.
In view of the new accreditation for the seminar of professional development, we will work on the design of a new seminar, its organization, presentation and the work enhancement during the seminar. In addition, we will work on better monitoring of students' input, their labeling and quality. In addition, our goal is to include more Wiki projects in the Education Program in the next academic year.
|Wiki Loves GLAMers
Goal: Achieving cooperation with cultural institutions in order to increase free knowledge.
Description: Content release by GLAM institutions, organization of seminars on implementation of wiki projects in culture, realization of editing workshops of Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commodities, organizing edit-a-thons.
Wikipedian in Residence
Goal: Establishing various forms of cooperation with the cultural institution, digitizing certain works, releasing them and educating employees on the application of wiki projects in culture.
Description:Engaging a Wikipedian in the cultural institution, where he will perform digitization, upload freed content to corresponding wiki projects, create content on Wikipedia based on available sources in the institution, organise workshops on editing Wikipedia, etc.
Wikimedians in Decentralization
Goal: Extending GLAM activities to parts of the country that are not covered by GLAM co-operation.
Description: One employee and one volunteer spend a short time in the cultural institution while doing internship on a smaller scale.
Within the framework of GLAM program, the successful cooperation with the Ministry of Culture and Information of Republic of Serbia continued in the first half of the year, within which funds were also provided for the implementation of three internship programs.
Under the auspices of the Ministry, two GLAM seminars were held for representatives of museums, archives, libraries and other institutions. One of the seminars was realized in cooperation with the Museum of Vojvodina, which is responsible for all the museums in this province.
For the first time, #1Lib1Ref campaign was conducted in Serbia. With a total of 786 references, Serbia ranks fourth in the world, and the 10,000th reference of the campaign was added on Serbian Wikipedia.
Within the project Wiki Librarian, eight workshops were held with a total of 49 participants and 383 pages created on wiki projects. Eight publications have also been digitized, which is 2035 pages total.
The third annual Mime Day edit-a-thon was held as a part of the First World Conference on Pantomime, which brought 27 articles to Serbian Wikipedia and eight articles to Macedonian Wikipedia. In addition, for the first time, the commons:Category:World Mime Day Edit-a-thon 2018famous world mimes were photographed for Wikimedia Commons.
We organised a hiring process for the new Wikipedians in Residence, where we received 206 applications and we had interviews with 24 of them. Seven people were selected for the implementation of these programs until the end of this year.
The two-month internship in the Museum of Yugoslavia began, from the funds received from the Ministry of Culture. An internship tutorial was also written in order to facilitate future work.
The main activity of the Wiki-team Trstenik project - a three-day camp also took place. Secondary school students from Trstenik, Vrnjačka Banja, Kraljevo, Kruševac and Rekovac passed training on editing Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons, and then they wrote and improved articles on the cultural heritage of this region and uploaded photographs released by the National Museum in Trstenik (National University).
GLAM activities were regularly shared with global Wiki Communities through the This month in GLAM newsletter.
Challenges and lessons learned
By the end of the year, Wikimedia Serbia will have six more Wikipedian in residence programs. Two programs will last for two months and will be financed by the Ministry of Culture, while five more one-month programs will be funded by Wikimedia Serbia (three programs are planned in the annual plan, while two will be realized through reorienting funds from the project Wikimedian in Decentralization). At the end of the year, we have planned media promotion of the results, with a special focus on the results of internships under the auspices of the Ministry.
New GLAM seminars organized by the Ministry of Culture are planned for September, but additional ones are expected, in cooperation with the representatives that attended the previous workshops and proposed the realization of these activities in their institutions. Seminars include a presentation section on the possibilities of implementing wiki projects in culture, making it easier to introduce institutions to the GLAM program and to further establish cooperation.
Serbian Ministry of Culture and Information, Wikimedia Serbia and the National Library of Serbia are planning to digitize the heritage collections. The role of Wikimedia in this process is focused on the use of digitized material in wiki projects, thereby increasing the visibility of such collections, as well as the dissemination of knowledge of cultural heritage.
A part of the participants of the GLAM seminar have expressed their interest and the need to gain additional skills in editing Wikipedia, as well as for their colleagues in the institutions to be trained to edit. Therefore, additional editing workshops are planned in such institutions, with the idea that they should be mainly implemented by experienced GLAM volunteers, or leaders of projects that will be transformed according to the real needs of the organization.
GLAM in Serbia awaits the opportunity to cooperate on models for which the cultural institutions expressed interest during seminars and other forms of communication. We strive to establish a stable cooperation when it comes to releasing content, organizing edit-a-thons, setting up QR codes, etc.
Goal:enabling members of our community to get to know each other, networking and strengthening the connections between them
Description: WikiLive is a local annual Wikipedian conference, which is conceived with the idea of strengthening the spirit of community, interconnecting the participants and involving them in the WMRS programs. The conference consists of a two-day program covering various topics from Wikipedia.
Goal: establishing better communication with the community and reducing the gap between Wikipedians and Wikimedians
Description: Within the project, activities such as community gathering, microgrants, organization of Wiki stand at public events, birthday celebrations, support for individuals in relation to the realization of activities and informing the community about various events through various communication channels are realized.
Article writing contests on Wikipedia
Goal: increasing the motivation and active participation of the community in Wiki projects
Description: The Contests on Wikipedia are organized several times a year. They usually last for a month (except CEE Spring) during which participants write and improve articles on various topics. Members of the jury evaluate the articles, after which the winners are proclaimed and rewarded. Contests are a good way to reduce the gap between Wikimedians and Wikimedians.
Within the framework of the Community Support Program in the first quarter, the most important events were the local Wikipedian Conference (WikiLive), the CEE Spring Competition and several organized gatherings and birthdays.
Since the volunteer community of Wikimedia Serbia is diverse, the Community Support Program has different target groups and accordingly various activities are carried out. One of the most important events that occurred during the first half of 2018 is definitely WikiLive Conference. WikiLive is a local conference of Wikipedians who contribute to Serbian Wikipedia. The gathering was organized with the idea to connect editors, strengthen the community and inform about current issues and problems on Wikipedia. This year, the conference brought together over a hundred editors of Wikipedia, online and offline volunteers who wanted to share their knowledge and hear something interesting from their peers. One of the new additions was also the call for community members to participate with the topics they wanted to present at the conference.
The conference itself had a two-day formal part that was full of various workshops and lectures. In addition to typical presentations, the program was enriched with interesting workshops in order to activate the participants. Unlike previous years, this year there were several parallel sessions, so the participants had a greater choice. The sessions that made the conference program had two goals. One was to provide as much information as possible to the audience both on current happenings on Wikipedia and on the activities of Wikimedia Serbia. The second objective was to enhance the involvement of participants in current projects and the obtaining of feedback. In the first quarter, the puzzle statuette for Branislav Jovanović Award was created. Several candidates were nominated and a longtime Wikipedian Dražen Dražeta won. Soon after the conference, everything was presented in a blog post that was shared with the community.
The first part of the year was also reserved for a very important contest on Wikipedia - CEE Spring 2018. This year CEE Spring has been the most successful so far. It was organized in cooperation with the Wikimedians of Republika Srpska User Group. As before, the rewards were selected as motivation, and we used a proactive approach in the form of sending individual invitations to Wikipedians to participate in the competition. At the end of the competition, we had 740 new and improved articles, thus Serbian Wikipedia earned third place in the global competition. It is praiseworthy to note the very good cooperation between the jury members and their responsiveness in evaluation, given the large number of articles.
In addition to conferences and contests, the important thing within the community motivation are birthdays, gatherings and other actions that are being undertaken in order to increase the motivation of Wikimedia Serbia community:
- Fifteen years of Serbian Wikipedia - this year, Serbian Wikipedia celebrated 15 years of its existence. In order to celebrate this jubilee, Wikimedia Serbia has launched a series of promotional activities before and after the birthday. Friends from chapters all over the world sent their birthday wishes to Serbian Wikipedia community. So we shared them on social networks and presented at the event. The celebration was held in Serbian - Korean Information Access Center, and the opening speech was given by the representatives of Wikimedia Serbia and the author of the first article on Serbian Wikipedia. The event was attended by over 30 guests, among which were contributors and volunteers. Event pictures can be seen in this category.
- In the first six months of 2018, 30 blog posts were written in order to invite the community to engage in current activities, as well as to notify the community of current events.
- Nineteenth meetup of General Assembly was held in February. Changes for the important acts were proposed, and then adopted (the Bylaws and the Financial Policy).
- At the very beginning of the year, a Microgrant funding call for proposals was announced. First, a plan and a time frame were created, and then a decision-making committee was set up. There were 14 proposals submitted to the competition. Although their number is not big, we can say that we have achieved our goal in terms of quality. Each project had similar objectives to the mission of Wikimedia Serbia. After two rounds of selection, the decision was made to accept 6 proposals which we have signed contracts with:
- Southeast through the lens 2 - the idea is to motivate a large number of individuals and institutions in Niš through activities such as photo-tours, exhibitions, tribunes, which are continuation of activities from the previous year. In addition to the massive collection of photographs under free license, the goals of the project include increasing free content in the form of Wikipedia pages;.
- Dragonfly-riding school - the aim of this project is enriching Wikimedia Commons with photographs of the diverse flora and fauna of Serbia, as well as writing new articles and improve existing ones, which is one way of raising public awareness of the importance of biodiversity and conservation of nature. Primarily, dragonfly species will be photographed (Odonata), as well as vascular plants. Biodiversity means the diversity of the living world at different levels, so in addition to photographs of individual organisms, their habitats as well as the areas in which these habitats exist will be photographed.
- Belgrade Librarians on Belgrade - This project is realized in cooperation with the Library of Belgrade. The idea is to start the cooperation with writing and improving articles about the capital of Serbia, and about municipal libraries, events, cultural heritage of Belgrade and the like.
- Flora and fauna of water habitats and invasive species of Serbia - Through this project, a group of students from Novi Sad will strive to enrich free content on the types of water habitats as well as invasive species of Serbia. It is planned to visit important water habitats and other types of habitats in Serbia, where different types of organisms will be investigated, which will subsequently be written in articles, supported by a large number of free images.
- Wild Wiki Parks 3 - The participants plan to write articles for at least 100 types of daily butterflies during the realization of this project, thereby facilitating the availability of this information on the Internet and additionally contributing to the development of Wikimedia's Wikispecies project. In parallel with this activity, the team will organize a photo competition in cooperation with the fungi association from Niš.
- Let's meet the geomorphology of Serbia - this project will increase and expand free content in the field of Geomorphology on Wikipedia, and the articles will be illustrated with photographs related to that area. In addition to these activities, the volunteers will tend to increase the interest of pupils and students for editing.
One project is accepted outside the micro-grants and will be part of the Community Support Program. It's called Little school of editing.
- In addition to the aforementioned activities, we also have projects that are being implemented by individuals who make a significant contribution to Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons. Let's meet Fruška Gora, On the border of Pannonia and Dinarides, and Roadside memorials and tombstones are supported by Wikimedia Serbia, and the results of previous work can be found on the following links:
- Let's meet Fruška Gora - the participants plan to, in cooperation with CA "Fruškać" from Novi Sad, photograph and discuss the topics and terms related to Fruška Gora, which will be found on Serbian Wikipedia (towns and settlements, monasteries and churches, natural and tourist destinations, lakes and caves, flora and fauna, monuments of culture and nature, etc.) - Wikipedia page with the list of articles, Commons category, usage of images
- At the border of Pannonia and Dinarides - the project involves the creation of multimedia material which represents a space between the Kolubara river and Valjevo mountains. This is done through several different thematic units which by their nature make an important segment in acquiring new knowledge and education - Commons category, usage of images in articles.
- Roadside memorials and tombstones of the Moravian district - the project’s objectives consist of the extensive presentation of the topic of old tombstones and memorials on Serbian Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons - Commons category, the list of articles.
Challenges and lessons learned
In the upcoming period, within the Community Support program, we are expecting two more article-writing competitions on Serbian Wikipedia. When choosing topics, we take into account topics proposed by the community. We will continue to support projects of individuals who significantly contribute to Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons, as well as the ones who received our micro-grants. Throughout the year, wiki meetups will be organized once a month, and we are planning to have a representative at the Volunteer Supporters Meeting that will be held in November in Vienna. In addition to these regular activities, we also have the idea to establish regional cooperation with Wikimedians and Wikipedians from the region. Selected models of cooperation can be wikicamps, edit-a-thons etc.
Work of Board and Academic Board
Throughout the first half of the year, the Board of Wikimedia Serbia held 6 regular meetings, during which 8 resolutions were made. The resolutions were mainly focused on current issues such as awarding prizes to winners of the competitions on Wikipedia, but also sending delegates to international conferences and events. The Board were dealing with project and HR management, but also with financial matters. In addition to internal organizational matters, members of the Board followed and were familiar with international developments in the Wikimedia Movement.
Board Members also participated in other segments of the organization's activities:
- Some of the Board members were also members of the Microgrants Committee. Within this call for projects, they reviewed received proposals, ranked and selected those for whom the funds were approved.
- Board members took part in the process of deciding who will be next Wikipedians in Residence. They had two rounds of selection and at the beginning of July, a decision was made on selected candidates.
- Board members were also delegates at international conferences and events to which they were invited (Wikimedia Conference in Berlin, Wikicamp in Hungary).
- One of the Board members was a jury member for the CEE Spring competition.
During the first half of the year, Academic Board held a meeting where numerous topics were covered. In addition to reviewing the report on the work of the Academic Board and the work on the Education Program, members reviewed the recruitment of new Wiki ambassadors and new members of the Academic Board. They also mentioned possible new models of cooperation within the Education Program.
In terms of media, this year traditionally began with the announcements regarding the birthday of English Wikipedia. Birthday was celebrated in January and we had 26 posts in media regarding this topic. The fact that Serbia is number one in editing Wikipedia bearing in mind edited pages compared to the population was also interesting for media. The most important news in February was 15th birthday of Serbian Wikipedia. There were 30 mentions recorded in media regarding this celebration.
Beside this, we talked about Education Program four time in media and special mention is made on TV N1 on this occasion.
Annual Wikipedian conference, WikiLive was mentioned in media 8 times. The most significant report was the one given by Radio Television of Serbia.
Cooperation with the Ministry of Culture and Information regarding GLAM workshops for cultural institutions drew attention of various media (Vojvodina, other). Camp for pupils in Homeland Museum in Trstenik also had media coverage.
In total, 187 posts were recorded in the first half of the year, and in additional 280 posts, Wikipedia was mentioned in margins.

Resources to plan for measurement
- Global metrics are an important starting point for grantees when it comes to measuring programmatic impact (Learning Patterns and Tutorial) but don’t stop there.
- Logic Models provide a framework for mapping your pathway to impact through the cause and effect chain from inputs to outputs to outcomes. Develop a logic model to map out your theory of change and determine the metrics and measures for your programs.
- Importantly, both qualitative and quantitative measures are important so consider both as you determine measures for your evaluation and be sure to ask the right questions to be sure to capture your program stories.
