  4. to promote the movement and the benefits of participation in it to the wider public by giving talks - 3 lectures or workshops given and 200 people reached by mid-November

Educational programme

How this activity will lead to program objectives

  • to introduce and increase the presence of the Wikimedia projects in the educational institutions;
  • to extend cooperation with educational institutions;
  • to promote the Wikimedia projects as useful educational tool;
  • to raise awareness about the benefits that the editing offers to the students;
  • to increase and improve the content on different topics;
  • to get access to materials that can be used for referencing.

Activity description We plan to continue our successful educational programme in various schools and universities, thereby creatinga good number of new content on different topics.The team working on the educational programme has overachieved some of the goals set for the year that passed. Based on our experience so far, we plan to expand the volume of our activities regarding the educational programme. Our main efforts will be focused on creating new content about economy at the Faculty of Economics at Ss. Cyril and Methodius University of Skopje, and then on various topics at the Josip Broz – Tito Grammar School. A lot of new challenges await for us during the oncoming period, so along with expanding the volume of activities in the educational institutions we currently collaborate with, we also plan on forging collaborations with institutions that have already been contacted and those that haven't. We also plan to The plan is to hold lectures on editing Wikipedia in other educational institutions, such as the Faculty of Natural Sciences (departments of Chemistry, Physics and Biology), Faculty of History, Faculty of English Language and Literature and Orce Nikolov Grammar School, Georgi Dimitrov Grammar School and the Construction School Centre in Skopje. We also plan on using current and future GLAM projects in education, with the focus on improving articles already created with those projects.

Lectures about Wikipedia

How this activity will lead to program objectives

  • to offer the general public clear and engaging insight into wikipedianship, how Wikipedia works, the benefits and what Wikipedians stand for.
  • to reach out to potential institutional or organisational collaborators through our lectures in their institutions.

Activity description The project includes series of lectures devoted to the Wikimedia movement, free knowledge and free culture with the goal of promoting and popularising them. It is intended to be short and engaging, full of facts about the movement and recent cool activities in the world and in Macedonia. The main goal is to inspire all the attendats of the lectures to join the community of Wikipedians and contribute in the movement's activities.

COMMUNITY

Program objectives

  1. reach out to new editors, thereby enlarging the community. - 76 new editors, total of 106 editors involved by mid-December
  2. enrich Wikipedias on topics that are insufficiently covered - Measured by no. of new articles in relevant areas - 350 articles added/improved by mid-December
  3. improve quality of content - 1000 images added by mid-December
  4. encourage editors to be more devoted to Wikipedian work - average of 5 articles per editor by mid-December

1. Edit-a-thons

How this activity will lead to program objectives

  • to increase activity on the Wikimedia projects;
  • to improve the quality of content;
  • to reach out to new potential editors.

Activity description

The goal of this project is writing articles on a pre-selected topic, in which participants gather in-person while editing. Thus, edit-a-thons are good opportunity for interested persons to come and meet members from the community by directly contributing to the Wikimedia projects. Along with contributing on Wikimedia projects, this is also a usefull way of strenghtening the Wikipedian community. For the upcoming year, we plan to organise six edit-a-thons (app. one in two months).

It should be noted that, from this year on, edit-a-thons will be held within GLAM institutions, as part of collaborations.

2. Editing days

How this activity will lead to program objectives

  • to enrich Wikipedias on topics that are insufficiently covered;
  • to encourage edtors to be more active and devote more of their free time to writing.

Activity description

The goal of this project is writing articles on a pre-selected underrepresented topic during 24-hour period (CET). Unlike the edit-a-thons, it is not necessary participants to gather in-person in order to participate in an editing day, which is particularly useful for those living in geographically remote areas. Thus, we expect to encourage large portion of the active membership to take part and enrich the amount of content on the given topic on the Wikimedia projects. We plan to organise twelve editing days in the upcoming period (app. one per month).

3. Editing competitions

How this activity will lead to program objectives

  • to achieve comprehensive coverage of topics on Wikipedia by a combined effort of various editors for a prolonged period of time;
  • to increase community strength and collaborative spirit.

Activity description

The editing competitions will be organised for the users active on the Macedonian Wikipedia with the main goal of improving the quality of the existing articles or creating new articles on specific topics. In each competition, the interested users will have to sign up their participation and contribute within the previously specified period for the competition. After the end of each competition, a jury consisted of three experienced Wikipedians will review the contributions of all participants and select the best three participants who will get awarded. We plan to organise four editing competitions in the year to come (app. one quarterly).

4. Wikipedia 15

How this activity will lead to program objectives

  • to celebrate the fact that Wikipedia has been with us for a decade and a half and has achieved so much that noone would hae thought possible;
  • to raise awareness of our movement and encourage participation via the media, where we will be promoting this event.

Activity description

Wikipedia 15 is the day on which Wikipedia's 15th birthday will be celebrated. For that purpose, we plan to carry out numerous activities with the aim of promoting the Wikimedia projects and the global Wikimedia movement, educating the public on how they work, introducing new members to the community, and explaining Shared Knowledge's projects and activities. That said, our goal is to get in touch with the media and arrange to be guests on TV and radio shows; to organise a conference day with lectures, workshops and panel discussions on topics related to the Wikimedia movement; to hold meetups in which anyone interested can meet with the members of the community; and have a birthday party.

5. Photographic hunts

How this activity will lead to program objectives

  • to encourage individuals with interest in topics to make expeditions to photograph a thematic unit and upload them;
  • to promote the approach of members of the public taking initiative in widening the scope and ideas of our organisation.
  • to draw the general public with interest in particular areas to become active participants in our movement by supporting them in their initial endeavour.

Activity description

The idea of this project is to provide members of the public an opportunity to go on a 'photographic hunt' after a particular topic or thematic unit and then be reimbursed by us for the travel and food costs while on the hunt. This way, we think that we will gain an opportunity to attract new members and active contributors.

GLAM

Program objectives

  1. to provide as much free content as possible through the digitalisation of public domain words and old documents, thereby sharing the country’s heritage - 1000 scanned and used images by November
  2. encourage the public to contribute free visual content - 4000 images and 100 participants by October
  3. to serve the projects of Shared Knowledge and the editing community in general as source texts, by providing invaluable source material on all topics. - 1000 articles created or improved as a result, by the end of 2016
  4. to provide access points for our content via QR codes to the general public, thus raising awareness of our work and the movement - at least 100 QRpedia plaques placed on buildings by mid-June and at least 30 page visits per month for the top 20 plaques in terms of location thereafter (measured at end of year).

1. Wikimedians-in-Residence

How this activity will lead to program objectives

  • to provide as many free content as possible through the digitalisation of public domain words and old documents;
  • to serve the projects of Shared Knowledge and the editing community in general, by providing invaluable source material on all topics.

Activity description

For the upcoming year we plan to extend the term of our Wikimedian-in-residence at the State Archives of the Republic of Macedonia (DARM). Shared Knowledge and DARM are both satisfied of the work done by the Wikipedian in residence in the previous months and there is interest from both sides to extend the cooperation. We also plan to introduce an additional Wikimedian-in-residence: at the National and University Library "St. Clement of Ohrid" (NUBSK). Our second Wikimedian-in-residence is already working at the Macedonian Academy of Sciences and Arts (MANU), who has already been on that position in the MANU Library for a month now, and is digitising materials, collect information and release content on many topics. The arrangements that were made with the National and University Library "St. Clement of Ohrid" last year did not end successfully and this year we plan to take the issue on a higher level in order to get the needed support. The role of the Wikimedian-in-Residence at NUBSK will be to address a significant problem we are facing as Wikimedians in this country - severe lack of digitised literature and material of any sort, other than classic literary works.

2. Wikiexpeditions

How this activity will lead to program objectives

  • to visit different regions in Macedonia in an organised manner, photographing them, visiting museums, old houses and monuments around the region, and writing articles on them;
  • to raise awareness of the features of interest and the heritage of places within those regions, that have often been forgotten for many decades.

Activity description

The goal of this project is to visit six new regions in Macedonia and to continue the success from the previous year. The Wikiexpeditions is planned to include visiting of villages, museums, taking photographs of monuments and landscapes and writing articles on the Macedonian Wikipedia. For the upcoming year, we plan to organise six Wikiexpeditions; two of them will be during the autumn and the other four during the spring.

3. Archaeoexpeditions

How this activity will lead to program objectives

  • to make invaluable images of important archaeological sites that have not had significant exposure in the mainstream and tourist guides.
  • to make images from rare and famous artifacts found on archaeological sites throughout Macedonia and writing articles about them
  • to make images from artifacts that are common for archaeological sites and exchavations and use them for writing general articles on archaeology, archaeological terminology and research
  • to promote the historical and cultural heritage of Macedonia and specific Macedonian regions thus raising the awareness of the features of interest and the heritage of places within those regions, that have often been forgotten or have not been known for many decades
  • to improve the quality and widen the scope of articles related to archaeology through cooperation with the Wikipedians in residence

Activity description

Archaeoexpeditions are very similar to the Wikiexpeditions with the main difference that they strictly focus on visiting archaeological sites. Macedonia has more than 6,000 archeological sites but most of them lack photographs and need improvements. Thus, the project aims at working together with archaeologists, searching for information and taking photographs from the sites. The first archaeoexpedition was successfully conducted during the previous year visiting 2 archaoglical sites that are officialy declared as sites of the highest and capitat national importance.

4. Geoexpeditions

How this activity will lead to program objectives

  • to explore, photograph and documents various geographic features and landmarks in areas that are remote and inaccessible
  • resolving the problem of lack of content on those areas, both visual and textual.
  • familiarise the public with these places with detailed descriptions, good images and information about the way to get to these places

Activity description

The Geoexpeditions are to be visits to mountainous areas and valleys aiming to cover, explore and photograph the various geographic landmarks in the relevant areas, such as peaks, ridges, topographic areas, passes, falls, forests, plateaus, rivers, brooks, streams, tributaries, waterfalls, lakes, as well as specific native (and endemic) flora and fauna. We also intend to explore soil types, rocks, hiking and mountaineering trails.

Two such expeditions are planned: Šar Mountain area and the Mokra massif. One is to take place during June-July, and the other in August-September 2016. We intend to stay in the local mountain lodges, serving as starting points of our exploration. Before, after and in between the expeditions, we intend to collect a considerable amount of research material on the areas visited, all of which is available in the fund of the Macedonian Academy of Sciences and Arts (MANU), where the project organiser/expedition leader serves as our Wikimedian-in-residence.

5. Veloexpeditions

How this activity will lead to program objectives

  • to visit two areas in the vicinity of Skopje (our hometown) with bicycles and camping equipment, photographing them, visiting their landmarks, old houses and monuments around the region, and writing articles on them;
  • to raise awareness of the features of interest and the heritage of places within those regions, that have often been forgotten for many decades.

Activity description

The goal of this project is to visit two regions adjacent to the Skopje region in Macedonia with bicycles (hence the 'velo' in the name) and camping equipment. We will camp around villages, visiting them with the bikes and make photographs of them, their monuments and surrounding landscapes, recording their heritage, churches, places of interest and other riches. Then we will write articles on the Macedonian Wikipedia, using the images provided.

7. WikiWine

How this activity will lead to program objectives

  • enrich content by 10 new articles on various wines and wine regions, illustrating them with at least 30 high-quality images taken on these 'wine tours' of wines and winery items;
  • to increase the interest in wine and wine science, as well as spread the knowledge of this region's ancient wine traditions by documenting at least 10 indigenous and regional wine varieties.

Activity description

WikiWine is a thematic project with the goal of enriching the Wikimedia projects with quality content on different sorts of wines. The plan is to visit vineyards and wineries which will provide information for all the wines that they produce, so that we can take photos and create articles on them. In this way, we will promote country's long tradition in the production of wine and make detailed and valuable information regarding Macedonian wine available to the general public.

8. Macedonian dialects

How this activity will lead to program objectives

  • to improve the rather theoretical and dry articles on the various dialects of Macedonia with audio samples by recording native speakers of those dialects in their areas;
  • to possibly inspire a collaboration with the language institutes to further enrich Wikipedia on that topic through their participation and/or collaboration.

Activity description

The project aims to record as many different dialects as possible from the various dialectical regions in Macedonia, and then use the recordings as samples to be placed in articles dedicated to each dialect. This will be accompanied with further bibliographic research of resources on dialectology and individual dialects that will ensure enrichment of those articles. For this purpose, we intend to collaborate with the Department of Dialectology at the Macedonian Language Institute in Skopje to provide guidance, materials and existing material to be released in the public domain.

9. Macedonian Radio Heritage

How this activity will lead to program objectives

  • to make valuable old recordings of interviews and performances held in the Audio Archives of the Macedonian Radio by famous people freely available to the general public.
  • to enrich articles by illustrating them with the content in question

Activity description

This project arose from the need to digitise valuable old recordings from the Audio Archives of the Macedonian Radio that will be invaluable in illustrating articles on various famous people (by excerpts of old interviews), events and performances. The Archives already have digitisation equipment, so we need to pick material. The material needs to be transferred on audio files, excerpts will be cut and metadata will be provided and entered with the help of the archivist.

10. Open Streets of Skopje

How this activity will lead to program objectives

  • to provide written content about the streets of Skopje, both about significant buildings and other places
  • to provide written content about the people, events and places after whom the streets were named
  • to significantly increase the visibility of our movement by placing QRpedia plaques on buildings, acting as access points for the content

Activity description

The project is intended to provide easy access to information about significant places and monuments and events along certain streets of Skopje. This will be done with an editing event with architecture students and other volunteers, and will be accessible in the form of templates that show the street and its represented features in a diagram form with clickable links.

There is also an initiative to provide QR-code plaques for certain buildings, but this depends of permissions and funding/

RESEARCH

Program objectives

Research

  1. to advance the understanding of the Wikimedia movement, the open knowledge movement and the free culture movement by implementing concepts in experimental, digital and open-source economics; - 2 research papers written by end of 2016
  2. to support the decision-making process with results obtained from analyses on the communities as integral part of the Wikimedia movement. - 2 surveys conducted to determine the situation on the wiki in the relevant areas by end of 2016

Activity description One of our goals for the upcoming year is to start writing research papers on topics related to the Wikimedia movement, open-source economics, experimental economics, sharing economics, network economics and digital economics. Our research activities will be carried out in line with the other research projects and we hope that our findings will be presented at future conferences. The research activities will also include surveying of the community members with the goal of providing information about the demographic structure of the community that will be helpful in setting the goals for our future projects.

PARTICIPATION IN CONFERENCES

In the upcoming year, we also plan to send three representatives (including a staff member) at the Wikimedia Conference 2016, two representatives at the Wikimedia CEE Meeting 2016 and also to award scholarships for participation in Wikimania 2016 and other conferences.

Impact reports: Q1 2016, Q2 2016, Q3 2016 and Q4 2016.

Education

  • to introduce and increase the presence of the Wikimedia projects in the educational institutions; - 3 institutions, 500 students reached, 100 new editors, 100 articles created and improved by end of 2016
So far we have 3 institutions where the Education Programme is running: The Josip Broz - Tito High School, the Faculty of Economics and the Institute of Philosophy in Skopje. So far, we have a total of 490 students reached, giving us 82 new editors who wrote 167 new articles.
  • to promote the Wikimedia projects as useful educational tool, raising the awareness that we are an invaluable asset in education - 3 new teachers participating by end of 2016
We have one new teacher (professor) participating so far (Prof. Naumoska at the Instutute of Philosophy), and we are negotiating with several more.
  • to attract new editors and movement participants among the students participating - 100 new editors
As mentioned above, we have had 82 new editors. It remains to be seen and researched (in our Research later this year) how many of them were retained as active editors, although we do know that some of them have become quite active.
  • to promote the movement and the benefits of participation in it to the wider public by giving talks - 3 lectures or workshops given and 200 people reached by mid-November
We have had a total of three Wikipedia lectures so far, one of them as part of the educational programme. On our first Wikipedia lecture for the general public this year was given in two parts: one in American Corner Skopje and one in the venue on the occasion of its 15th birthday we offered the interested public an insight into what is Wikipedia, how to edit it and what it is to be a Wikimedian in general, explaining various activities they can participate in. The second lecture was given at the Arhipunkt startup to arhitecture students, who then went on to write a great deal of content. During the second quarter, we have the third lecture, taking place in the Institute of Philosophy at the SS. Cyril and Methodius University of Skopje. This lecture was attended by 15 students of ancient philosophy, and they received great encouragement by Jasmina Naumoska, Professor of Ancient Philosophy. All this was facilitated with the help of our member, Maksim Nikiforovski, who is a student of Prof. Naumovska. With this, we have reached about 110 people.
We have also signed a comprehensive agreement of collaboration with the National and University Library of Macedonia, and soon expext the same with the Brothers Miladinovi City Library. These institutions are keen to promote the projects and help is organise and publicise lectures, calling on their memebrship and the general public to join in. We thus expect great improvements to follow. We also agreed on holding two further lectures for the upcoming editing projects with the Mathematical Society of Macedonia and the European Medical Students Association (EMSA).

Community

  • reach out to new editors, thereby enlarging the community. - 76 new editors, total of 106 editors involved by mid-December
We reached 82 new editors by the end of June, mainly through participation in competitions. However, our strategy has been intensified recently, since we have signed a comprehensive agreement of collaboration with the National and University Library of Macedonia, and soon expext the same with the Brothers Miladinovi City Library. These institutions are keen to promote the projects and help is organise and publicise lectures, calling on their membership and the general public to join in. We thus expect great improvements to follow. We also agreed on holding two further lectures for the upcoming editing projects with the Mathematical Society of Macedonia and the European Medical Students Association (EMSA).
  • enrich Wikipedias on topics that are insufficiently covered - Measured by no. of new articles in relevant areas - 350 articles added/improved by mid-December
We have reached 894 articles in a combination of rather sucessful editing competitions, edit-a-thons, editing days, as well as the regular editing as part of the Wikiexpeditions, photohunts and other expeditions, where there are lots of articles created about various settlements and objects of cultural and natural significance in their area.
  • improve quality of content - 1000 images added by mid-December
So far, we have uploaded a total of 730 images, most of which are due to the various expeditions and photohunts. Now a very large majority of iamges are used in articles, because of the focused and systematic approach enabled by this method (unlike the photographic competitions, where we were recieving a large volume of images that couldn't be reasonably used in articles).
  • encourage editors to be more devoted to Wikipedian work - average of 5 articles per editor by mid-December
While our active editors regularly create many times the average articles, a general overview of participation in article number will be available when we have the results of the Readership and Editorship Survey in the second half of the grant year.

GLAM

  • encourage the public to contribute free visual content - 4000 images and 100 participants by October
In this first half of the year, we have 1416 images from our GLAM initiatives. One part of it comes from the scanned material of our Wikimedian-in-Residence, and the other came from the Eropean Science Photo Competition, having 31 participants. We are about to introduce a second WiR and collaborate with some further institutions in different ways, in order to provide a large volume of good content.
Although not stricly a GLAM activity, our Photohunts are general-participation initiative for anyone interested to contribute images of their own in an organised manner. We have further 712 images thanks to the 8 photohunts.
  • to serve the projects of Shared Knowledge and the editing community in general as source texts, by providing invaluable source material on all topics. - 1000 articles created or improved as a result, by the end of 2016
The work of our WiR has resulted in 686 articles improved in a direct way, as well as many more in his support work of our community projects (See Program story for more info).
  • to provide access points for our content via QR codes to the general public, thus raising awareness of our work and the movement - at least 100 QRpedia plaques placed on buildings by mid-June and at least 30 page visits per month for the top 20 plaques in terms of location thereafter (measured at end of year).
Unfortunately, we have been unable to meet this metric due to reluctance in financial participation for the QR-codes on the part of those to whom we reached-out. We are working on another partnership, where this will not be an issue (i.e. the costs will be covered).

Research

  • to advance the understanding of the Wikimedia movement, the open knowledge movement and the free culture movement by implementing concepts in experimental, digital and open-source economics; - 2 research papers written by end of 2016
Due to various chapter engagements, we decided to work on the research papers in the second half of the year. There are currently two concepts. The first is of economic nature, as mentioned above, and needs to be developed father, although ideas have already been introduced. The second research item is planned to take place in the same second half of the year, and it is to be on a scientific topic, in collaboration with partner chapters and linked to the Open Science Data initiated and presented by our colleagues from Wikimedia Deutschland on this year's Wikimania.
  • to support the decision-making process with results obtained from analyses on the communities as integral part of the Wikimedia movement. - 2 surveys conducted to determine the situation on the wiki in the relevant areas by end of 2016
During this first half, we have made a draft-version of the Readership and Editorship Survey (thus merging the two intended surveys into one), which we will develop further soon, and then run it for the required period of time. We have also spoken to Edward Galvez, who had some general tips for us and is ready to assist us in the development of the survey.

The main learning stories for our organisation in 2016 were the following:
  1. ArchiWiki edit-a-thon - ArchiWiki (Архивики) was our second edit-a-thon for this year, held in conjunction with the architectural design centre Arhipunkt (Архипункт), and architectural website MARH. The purpose of this undertaking was to enrich the Macedonian Wikipedia with varied content about architecture.
  2. 342 photos donated by professional photographer Darko Cvetanoski - Darko Cvetanoski (User:Darkocv), a professional photographer for the "Utrinski Vesnik" newspaper as well as several other web sites, portals and news agencies, decided to enrich Wikimedia Commons with pictures donated from his abundant collection. So far, he has uploaded 342 high quality images of dozen of villages, churches, monuments and landscapes from the region of Malesija which is one of the most remote mountainous areas in the westernmost part of Macedonia.
