Wikipedia has been popular in India since its initial years, especially as a source of information. Though a major number of edits from India are anonymous IP edits, India has produced some excellent editors as well. These editors have worked hard to improve and increase India related content on Wikipedia over the years. WikiConferenceIndia 2011 was successful in many ways, and we need such conference for national integration.

Museum publications as part of GLAM Institutions can be used by teachers as supplementary resources on a wide range of heritage topics related to the curriculum as a great way of disseminating information to student thereby giving each student an opportunity to have something to write about on Wikipedia. Outreach programs such as these will encourage everyone to develop learning attitude and sharing collections within the encyclopedia and also they could be used in a variety of lesson plans from social studies to science by teachers to mentor students or even be uploaded on Wiki Varsity as a learning material. Children would be responsible for bringing knowledge, maintaining frequent displays and gathering more information, as a way of developing their research and analytical skills hence growing the great encyclopedia.

Developing a new way to asses admin. editors. activities and allow "secret-shoppers" to volunteer to collect data and information, and allow evaluation of what that data means for the health of Wikipedia. The risk of the project is the potential loss of active editors and valuable admin. who could potentially be offended enough to leave. So mitigating that would also be a goal.

The answer to the question “why women do not contribute to Wikipedia” often inclines to the reproduction of certain patriarchal stereotypes for women in general and women’s relationship to technology in particular. The common belief that women are reluctant of engaging in Wikipedia, due to the fact that the area is male dominated, insinuates tactfully that women lack the criteria and the potential. This common and controversial belief does not help clarify the matter. It rather obscures it. Our project is to propose and explore a different approach on the issue based on the greek case. Our main focus is to explore how the labor needed in order to contribute to Wikipedia is experienced by men and women in Greece. In other words, how the time-consuming task of editing plays a significant role and how it is affected by offline activities. The project will be based on a qualitative research through a series of interviews with members of the Wikipedia community in Greece, women scholars (professors, phd candidates etc.) engaged in various fields of social sciences and women professional writers (journalists)....
