Other knowledge to prepare
There are many other things that are likely unnecessary to teach during the initial training, unless they are part of a goal of your event. However, at many editathons, participants have questions about:
- How to find and use templates, especially Infoboxes
- How to engage with talk pages
- How to illustrate Wikipedia articles with existing content on Commons or upload content to Commons
- How to use web browsers, copy and paste functions, and other technical literacy skills.
