Question: Wikipedia Education Program support for classes[edit]

Hi Nichole,

Does Wikipedia Education Program currently offer support for classes like OLES2129 at the University of Sydney? If so, could you or someone you work with reach out to User:Fransplace to discuss issues with this class? More generally, is there someone at Wikipedia Education Program who can watch and occasionally comment in an official capacity at the Wikipedia:Education noticeboard when issues are raised with classes outside of the US or Canada, (which I understand are covered by wikiedu)? This class is running into a number of problems, possibly because of its large size (290 students) or instructor inexperience. See Wikipedia:Education noticeboard discussion

Thanks,Dialectric (talk) 16:59, 24 October 2018 (UTC)

Hi Dialectric,
Thanks for the ping. I have a meeting with the new Wikipedia & Education User Group on Monday and will bring this up so that we can best support cases like this. I will update you when we have a more official process.

[Wikipedia & Education User Group] Updates: November 2018[edit]

Greetings,

Integrating Wikimedia with education is a powerful strategy for the outreach of Wikimedia projects. Realising this concept, a group of leaders promoted this and formed the Wikipedia Education Collaborative. After some time, this evolved to become a user group, officially recognised by the Affiliations Committee in June 2018. The user group had its first board elections earlier in September. In the process to formalise activities and give a shape the user group for long-term sustainability, we are now revamping our processes. Thanks for supporting us during incubation stages, we are now inviting you to formally join the user group by following the instructions on the members' page. Being a member will allow you to be a part of this wonderful collaboration and also do interesting stuff.

Kind regards

Mobile Week[edit]

Hello Nichole

I am hoping to attend Mobile Week at Unesco. I was told you are coming. May I ask if you could bring me a bunch of leaflets related to Safety events : File:Keeping events safe booklet.pdf. I would need some for the Gender-focused events I organize in my city. Thanks Anthere (talk) 20:06, 28 February 2019 (UTC)

ping User:JVargas (WMF).
Hi User:Anthere, unfortunately we are all already traveling and are unable to meet this request. If you can get it printed locally that's probably the easiest solution. NSaad (WMF) (talk) 10:36, 1 March 2019 (UTC)
Arg. Sorry, I was too slow to ask. Sorry for pointing out what is not obvious but... 1) it is not cost effective to print in small quantities, 2) it is actually not cheap to do printing... and 3) there is currently no easy solution to get micro-funding to do so. Oh well. I will ask Wikimedia France if they can get some more printed in the future or I'll grab some at a future event. Anthere (talk)
