Tulu Wikipedia is in incubation and CIS-A2K is helping the Tulu community to bring Tulu Wikipedia out of incubation. CIS-A2K did not conduct any workshop or presentation about Tulu Wikipedia during this period. But it worked remotely on these task of increasing content in Tulu Wikipedia and growing & sustaining the editor community of Tulu WIkipedia. Active Tulu and Kannada Wikipedian Prof Vishvanatha Badikana alon with another Tulu Wikipedian were interviewed by a local TV channel Spandana TV of Mangaluru. CIS-A2K was instrumental in this interview to happen. Video interviews of two prominent Tulu Wikipedians were conducted and uploaded commons. A tutorial video was created on starting with Tulu Wikipedia. The video is available here.
