Professor based model
IEP version 2.0 will be a professor based model and not an institution based model. Rather than enrolling universities in IEP we will enroll individual professors who'd be interested to work with us. Even if that means enrolling just one professor from a university.

In the IEP version 2.0 we want to make sure that we only enroll those professors who would voluntarily like to include Wikipedia as a teaching tool in their classes. Hence we want to change the IEP model and work with individual professors rather than working with institutes.

Teachers will also learn basic editing and on-wiki communication techniques. The orientation will comprise three main modules:
