Did you meet your goals? Are you happy with how the project went?

Yes this a very good start for the WIKINOMAD project.

This year (2018) , WikiNomad Project has targeted around four important points :

  1. Recruit new editors  : Initiate 10 young people from The associations of the city of Oran ("ISOCLUB" and "The Algerian nomads").
  2. Engage existing editors : Transmit their know-how in publishing in Wikipedia and commons (show that we can edit encyclopedia wikipedia).
  3. Add and improve content : Enrich Wikipedia in articles and pictures on Algeria.
  4. Establish links  : With local associations of the visited cities.

  • What worked well? social media campaign - the expedition - the workshops
  • What did not work so well? upload cessions - editing articles
  • What would you do differently next time? Next time, we need to organize an exclusive download assignment to upload any photos taken during the expedition
