As Wikimedia TN user Group member,I received an invitation from the organizer team of elearning Africa to present the wikipedia education program. In the presentation I will ː

  1. explain why editing wikipedia isn't only for art and literature students
  2. how editing isn't only by writing articles
  3. present my new project 'wiki club' at universities in Tunisia
  4. discuss with participants their experiences with the education program

Goal and expected impact[edit]

I will talk about the importance of using the Wikipedia Education Program in universities, the experiences of MedinaPedia (Tunis and Dougga) and how scientific students contributed to the success of these projects. I will propose to collaborate between universities from different countries which work in the Education Program, and I would like to take advices from other experiences with this program.
