Goals[edit]

The User Group's equipment project has been a rewarding experience. The equipment acquired offered new material capabilities to the User Group[1]. Regarding editorial aspects, the two computers and the camera were used, among other occasions, during Edit-athons (Black Power Editathon & Editathon of the French contribution month), Training sessions (The Wikipedia classes & the WLW project) and during activities of the 2017 Wiki Loves Africa contest.

Learning[edit]

One of 2 computers used during the Black Power Edit-athon.
  • The camera was very useful in covering the activities of the User Group and during the 2017 and through Wiki Loves Photo Contest.
  • Uploading images is more successful than editing articles.
  • There is more enthusiasm to publish during physical meetings. This is partly due to how expensive access Internet at home is.
  • The acquired material fostered the participation and engagement of the User Group members in several activities: Wikimania2017 Application, Wikimooc Certification, Wikimedia 2030 statements summarizing, Black Power edit-athon, Francophone contribution month's edit-athon, Associative Missions (3rd General Assembly, Wiki Mousso, the local version of Wiki Loves Women, Wikimedia 2030, and Budgets).
