*Wikipedia Education Program


Since cooperation with the NCCU course "World Ethnography" in 2014, WMTW and Taiwan Wikimedia communities have run education program 3 years. After the wiki club of NTU being set up last year, the number of courses in WEP is increase significantly. 7 courses in 3 school (NCCU, NTU and TCU) joined the program, brought Wikipedia more than 100 new users, and more than 90 articles had been established or improved.


By the situation, WMTW have made qualitative research reports on the cooperation of the four Taiwan university education programs in 2nd semester of 2016 academic year (February to August 2017). We hear volunteers talking about that they are over-loading and need more resources from chapter. If we can't make some specific responses to these needs this year, WEP in Taiwan may be foiled because volunteers burn out. For the reason, we will focus on education program with new staff input. We hope the base installation of WEP can be established this year, to let WEP has the capacity of sustainable development.


Otherwise, we organized Taiwan task force of WikiProject Medicine since 2014. The task has translated more than 300 articles to Chinese Wikipedia, the number is 2nd of all language versions. Most volunteers of this project are students study in College of Medicine, so we'll support them by resources of WEP. There are several active translators in the project, but only one volunteer move the translated text to Wikipedia. Beside increasing the number of translator, we need more volunteers who can help Wikify at the same time.


This program will be the top priority of WMTW in 2018. That is to say if we can get the amount we expect in the grant, we'll decrease the goals of other program, to make sure all the goals of WEP can be reached.

策略 Strategy


This year WMTW will make the Education Program with more staff input so the service can maintain consistent, there will be 3 points in development

    30 new translators and 5 new Wikify volunteers or more in task force of WikiProject Medicine.

*GLAM Partnership Initiative


Taiwan Wikimedia community has little contact with GLAM organize before. The only support we get from GLAM are docent reservation or book lending when need for active. However, in the late of 2017, the Li Mei-shu (a deceased known Taiwanese painter) Memorial Gallery invite us a cooperation project to donate the digital files of all collections to Wikimedia movement; and a on-line Gallery want donate about 100 photo or video files to Commons, but we haven't started to sort out and upload them on a large scale.


We hope to finished the two projects, and find some new partners by the outcome of these, to start up the GLAM program in Taiwan.

策略 Strategy


To make potential partners, since partnership in the past didn't go deep.

具體目標 SMART goals

  1. 執行3個館聯專案。一個專案必須達成下列其中一項目標才算被執行:
    Done 3 GLAM projects. A project will be determined “done” if any the following target is reached:
    1. 為維基媒體計畫增加了50個以上的多媒體檔案。
      Increase more than 20 multi-media files to Wikimedia projects.
    2. 舉辦一系列編輯聚會,所有場次共有30個以上的參與者,包括5名館聯機構中的員工或導覽志工。
      Hold a series of successful meetups (a series means at least 5 meetups) including and have 30 participants or more in all meetups totally.
    3. 與任何館聯機構簽訂書面合作協議,並且在年底前完成協議中規畫的進度。

      1000 (or more) leaflets, cool cards or stickers 1000. We'll distribute it in GLAM events, GLAM partner's space, or WMTW's stand in some conferences, to introduce GLAM program to normal people.
    2. 線上版的推廣合作文件1份,向館聯機構介紹如何開啟合作專案。
      An online promoting document, to teach organize of GLAM how to start a GLAM project with us.

*Marginal Communities Facilitation Program


WMTW re-grant 5 communities in 2017. All communities with or without re-granted by us hold more than 600 events, and improve more than 250 articles. Analyzing the outcome of last year, we find that local community can not increase its influence necessarily even we input some resource, because the limit of manpower. Student club or community with some main themes have more growing potential. The work pushing student club has been moved into Wikipedia education program, so we'll pay more attention to push marginal communities.


By the outcome in 2017, 4 themes will be the top targets we want to push. They are gender, small languages, photography, and MediaWiki programing. We choose these themes because they all had a little result before.


About gender, the women community "A Room of WikiWomen's Own" have 5 fixed members and about 8-15 participants in their monthly meetup. It's a stable community and energetic enough to hold Art and Feminism Edit-a-thon. They can hold meetup by themselves without helping from chapter in the 2nd half of 2017. We can work in coordination with theme, and focus on increase their influence. For example, in 2017, we hold a editing class with "Awaken Foundation" (a gender movement organize), and invited "The Society of Taiwan Women in Science and Technology" (TWIST) to provide some reference about biographies of Taiwan women in science and technology. We can still work with these two organizes and find some partners else.


About small language, we are running project of incubating Wikipedia in Taiwanese aborigines languages with ALCD of NCCU. The are 5 during 16 aborigines languages were maintained the most active communities by Incubator in 2017. ALCD of NCCU consider to continue the project, and wish that some aborigine people can successfully have Wikipedia in their native language version.


In 2017, we also hold photography competition WLM & WLE, and developed IDS (Ideographic Description Sequence) system for MediaWiki to show some Chinese character without Unicode which are used in Southern Min or Yue Chinese. We hope some communities of multimedia or technology will be created by contributors.

策略 Strategy


The Wikimedia communities in Taiwan have reach sufficient momentum, we will focus this year to make them more diverse. Especially the diversity of language, gender, and the way of their contribution (which means not only text content, but multimedia or technology side of contribution).

2018我們計畫增加1FTE的職員。其中0.5FTE是來自去年以自籌款項雇用的行政人員。這個職員已聘雇兩年,但去年因為Simple APG只給予 1 FTE,我們以自籌款項支付,今年希望改由Simple APG支應。另外0.5FTE是教育專案的經理人,他的工作在下一節敘述。

We plan to add 1 FTE staff in 2018. 0.5 FTE is from administration who hired by self-raising income last year. The staff actually is hired for two years, but cause the grant only gave us 1 FTE last year, so we raised his paid from other side. We hope that can back to simple APG this year. Another 0.5 FTE is for education program manager, his work is in the next section.
