Project Plan[edit]


Tell us how you'll carry out your project. Be sure to answer the following questions:

1. Are you doing one editathon or training or a series of editathons or trainings?

I am doing two Editathons

2. How have you let relevant Wikimedia communities know about this proposal? You are required to provide links to on-wiki pages to inform these communities about your proposed work. Examples of places where this can be done include community discussion pages, affiliate discussion pages, or relevant project talk pages.
You may also provide information about external social media channels you may be using.

The program has been announced at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Wikimedia_User_Group_Nigeria#Superlative_Campaign_for_Excellence_Program_Announcement.

3. How will you let participants know about the edit-a-thon? In what ways will you be communicating with them?
For example, these can include on-wiki spaces, social media channels, mailing lists, messaging apps, or physical/online gatherings.

Mailing lists of the University and WhatsA WhatsApppp groups of Superlative Campaign for Excellence groups, faculty WhatsApp groups, ASUU WhatSapp groups, our existing WhatsApp group platform in the university etc will be used to let participants know about the program and in communicating with them.

4. Do you have experienced Wikimedia editors to lead the event? Please provide links to the usernames of these individuals.
For example: User:Kaizenify

Yes, we have experienced Wikipedians to help us. :User: Ngozi osadebe, User: Ezimoo, User: Beatrice Ewa and myself User: Stella Ngozi Udechukwu are available to handle the program.

5. Do participants have the equipment or skills needed to participate and contribute high-quality content? If not, how will you support them?

Yes. Participants have laptops, which they will use. All academic staff of the university have their laptops, which they use for their publications. The University also has computers in the ICT centres that are meant for staff use, which we can also use. The University also have Internet Access, which is meant for all staff and students but sometime, there will be no light and no internet access. For this reason, we will provide data and a standby generator in case of power failure.

6. How will you engage participants after the event(s)?

I will arrange a meet-up for participants two weeks after the event. Further interaction with the participants will be through our existing Wikipedia WhatsApp group in the university.
