Youtube channel
The Wikipedia channel on YouTube needs to be developed more. You need to publish videos on how to create a new article and how to edit it and how to share information with the community in Arabic and English, and now the most young people are using YouTube in a large and daily way. This can help to spread the wiki more quickly in our societies. Arabic.

Who are the people you want to introduce Wikipedia to?[edit]

Try to be as specific as possible about this group.
increase awareness of Wikimedia projects by giving workshops in universities and schools to teach Wikipedia and use Wikipedia as a source of reliable information. I have a program in this regard, which is the work of meetings and workshops for all groups of society and all over Iraq.

English and Arabic

In what ways does this group communicate with each other?[edit]

This can include services and apps in social media, mailing lists, physical spaces like conferences or lectures, or at specific institutions like at a library.
Conferences and workshops

What are some reasons this group would use Wikipedia? How would they benefit from it, or what would they find useful?[edit]

Think about what they would be interested in reading and learning about; does Wikipedia provide better access to information this group cares about?
Increase and improve the skills of the contributors in the Wiki through the work of workshops and seminars continue to explain the correct way to create an article and the accuracy of information contained in and how to share with the community, making it easy for new readers and editors to participate and at the same time there will be increased awareness of the importance of reliable sources and methods of access and participation We will get more productivity on wiki.

Through the work of workshops or seminars periodically in the universities and schools to define the wiki for all where I am now in the process of preparing for the opening of the education program in Iraq and for all segments of society. Last year we conducted a workshop in Erbil and was explained how to create a new article and how to share information and establish the idea Sharing information and the importance and impact of this matter in society.

Get Involved[edit]

About the idea creator[edit]

I would like to make an intervention on my personal experience about starting my knowledge of Arabic Wikipedia at a workshop in Erbil, and then my enthusiasm in the addition to Wikipedia until my articles reached 169 articles and 2325 edits, and how to compete all day with the rest of the workshop about who will add More to the Encyclopedia
