Story[edit]

Looking back over your whole project, what did you achieve? Tell us the story of your achievements, your results, your outcomes. Focus on inspiring moments, tough challenges, interesting antecdotes or anything that highlights the outcomes of your project. Imagine that you are sharing with a friend about the achievements that matter most to you in your project.

  • This should not be a list of what you did. You will be asked to provide that later in the Methods and Activities section.
  • Consider your original goals as you write your project's story, but don't let them limit you. Your project may have important outcomes you weren't expecting. Please focus on the impact that you believe matters most.
  • en:
  • ru: Мы подавали заявку на грант для одного квартала 2017 года. Грантовый комитет утвердил её, увеличив срок исполнения до 6 месяцев. Вместе с тем, нам удалось использовать средства экономно и попросили продление действия гранта до конца 2017 года. Этот проект был нашим первым опытом годового планирования мероприятий и их реализации. Мы научились процессу составления комплексного бюджета, осуществления учета расходов в годовом периоде. Наличие финансовых средств позволила нам эффективно проводить мероприятия, вдохновлять участников вниманием к их бескорыстному творчеству. Возможность активного участия в общественной жизни общества имеет большое значение для людей пенсионного возраста. В результате мы добились высоких результатов. За прошлый год создали 4191 новую статью, это рекордный показатель за всю историю развития Башкирской Википедии. Мы также вывели из Инкубатора Викиучебник на башкирском языке в самостоятельный проект.

Learning[edit]

The best thing about trying something new is that you learn from it. We want to follow in your footsteps and learn along with you, and we want to know that you took enough risks in your project to have learned something really interesting! Think about what recommendations you have for others who may follow in your footsteps, and use the below sections to describe what worked and what didn’t.

What worked well[edit]

What did you try that was successful and you'd recommend others do? To help spread successful strategies so that they can be of use to others in the movement, rather than writing lots of text here, we'd like you to share your finding in the form of a link to a learning pattern.

What didn’t work[edit]

What did you try that you learned didn't work? What would you think about doing differently in the future? Please list these as short bullet points. en:

  • The primary problem is lack of technical facilities:
  • Many editors do not have laptops, and use outdated computers;
  • Some users have only limited Internet access. This is especially a problem for rural locations;
  • Also, we have been experiencing a type of communication problem, which is related to the advanced age of many of the new participants. While training new editors remotely and in class, we have found out that people typically learn things much more effectively when the instructor sits next to him/her rather than provides the training remotely;
  • In the future, we plan to:
  • Start the practice of raising funds and assisting contributors in addressing their technical problems, by subsidizing their purchases of laptops and helping to pay for better Internet plans;
  • Continue the practice of conducting offline mini-seminars and trainings;
  • Make efforts to organize effective online conferences and online trainings;
  • Work to improve the training levels of lead editors, the leaders of separate projects, activity areas and Wiki-clubs;
  • Continue the practice of attracting elderly, retired people to contribute to Wikipedia;
  • Introduce the practice of attracting high school students to contribute to Wikipedia.

Other recommendations[edit]

If you have additional recommendations or reflections that don’t fit into the above sections, please list them here.

Are there opportunities for future growth of this project, or new areas you have uncovered in the course of this grant that could be fruitful for more exploration (either by yourself, or others)?
