This past month was a major milestone for the workshop development process, as we concluded the pilot program at Loyola. The program ended with two more workshops, both of which were very successful, on par with the previous workshops. Several other parts of the program moved forward this month:
- I attended the Wikimedia Conference and solicited feedback from representatives of various chapters
- Copies of the kit were distributed to several Wikimedians for testing, which will hopefully occur in the fall of this year at several different types of institutions.
- On-wiki documentation was created and expanded on English Wikipedia.
For the final two months of this grant, I will be working on planning the beta test, finalizing the kit, and distributing materials extensively. Some of the measures of success can be examined now. Though only one article was brought to Did You Know on the English Wikipedia during the pilot, 21 articles were significantly expanded and 50 were created during workshop time. One editor has consistently edited outside of workshop time, though 9 participants came multiple times; all proved capable of teaching Wikipedia skills to new attendees.

I've been busy running the beta test of the kit with Wikimedia DC and need more time to compile the data from that. A lot of new ideas and outcomes came from that workshop and I believe that they should absolutely be included in the final report. Keilana|Parlez ici 19:46, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
