Institutional Partnerships (Ongoing)[edit]

TAKEN: TITO

This year the strategy will be to partner with colleges where they have language, journalism and communication as a course. These students will be better candidates to write on Wikipedia. Tumkur University, Hampi University are the colleges where this partnership has been already initiated and will be rolled out. These colleges have students who have come from rural Karnataka and have studied in their mother tongue medium till high school. Most of them aim to become a journalist in native language media or a language teacher. Hence they will be best suited candidate to edit Wikipedia. More such colleges and institutions will be targeted. The partnership with Christ University will be continued and the number of activities in which the students are involved will be increased in the upcoming year also.

Plan[edit]

To rope in 2 -3 institutions to make contributing to Wikisource and Wikipedia part of their curriculum. Create awareness about the importance of Wikipedia among the teaching community and involve some faculty in rolling out the Wikipedia in Education Program.

Execution[edit]

  • Creating separate project pages for each engagement (single workshop or a set of workshops as a single entity)
  • Creation of articles by students in their username space (sandbox pages) or draft namespace
  • Evaluation based on language, length, references from CIS-A2K
  • Notifying the community for a review process of articles written by students as the quality of the Wikipedia should be maintained.
  • If there is a publication in these universities, re-license them under CC-BY-SA and use them on wikisource.

Projection[edit]

  • Christ University - There are about 500 undergraduate students in the first year and about 300 students in the second year who have opted for Kannada as one of the languages of study. They will be taken through the step by step process of adding content to Kannada Wikisource and Wikipedia. 1st semester students will add just one write-up (copyright free text) to Wikisource. Second semester students will add 4 such write-ups to Wikisource. Copyright free content can be added to Wikisource. These could be the some volumes of Mysore University Kannada Vishwakosha (encyclopaedia) released under CC-BY-SA, very old books, classics like Mahabharata, Vachana Sahitya, Dasa Sahitya, etc. 4th semester students will write one subject-specific article in Kannada Wikipedia. Thus totally it is expected to produce about 2500 write-ups in Kannada Wikisource and about 300 articles on the Kannada Wikipedia. The entire program is expected to bring in about 300 new editors to Kannada Wikisource and Wikipedia.
  • Tumkur University - There are about 60 students in the MA (Kannada) course here. They will be trained on editing Kannada Wikipedia. They are expected to add about 60 articles to Kannada Wikipedia.

As an active step towards enabling the spread of content editing and contributing skills on Wikipedia in vernacular languages, Christ (Deemed to be University), in collaboration with the CIS-A2K, will be starting certificate courses on using and editing in Wikipedia for the students. The course will be conducted after normal working hours, have lasted for a total of 45 hours, carried 2 credits to be added to students’ academic records and enrolled 30 to 45 students per batch. The students who have the real interest in learning and understanding the movement will take part.
