Similarly, we will offer two ways of study to encourage participation.Each module will have two activities. If you make both of them during the 7 modules you will get a certificate with a higher score in hours, if you just perform an activity per module , you will receive a certificate of completion for half hours. This way, we hope to encourage people to stay and remain with us even if they perform at their own pace.
From 21 April to 12 May, 928 people from different countries of the region and Spain have signed up to participate. This year we will also have the same active tutors than 2015, editors who began their journey as students in the course 2014. To Include students as ambassadors is one of our main goals.

  • Activity: Participation and content
  • Program:Education Program
  • Description:Wikimedia Argentina has designed its own learning platform for its online courses.

According to the results of 2015, 89% of the content improved in Wikipedia happens during and after the completion of the virtual course. With this context to have our platform was a need, since we rely on other institutions'agenda that severely limited us when to do the activity.
The campus is organized into three sections:
  1. Courses: where you can find the active courses.
  2. Community: meeting place for teachers, participants and Wikipedians. It has been designed as Facebook, a format well known by all.
  3. Resources: space where you can find all the teaching resources that we have developed to help participants to learn how to edit, among other things.
In this sense, we have designed a learning space that it's also a meeting space where to build community, a key goal for Wikimedia Argentina
