Wikipedia 201 Education Program for Advanced Users in Turkey


Wikipedia 201 (Vikipedi 201) is a video training set project where experienced Wikipedia users will transfer their experiences to other Wikipedians and shoot and record them in a professional studio for later viewing. This project is carried out by Wikimedia Community User Group Turkey.

Video shooting was done at RGB Studios at Istanbul Bilgi University in Türkiye. The prepared videos can be watched on Wikimedia Turkey's YouTube channel and Wikimedia Commons.

The recordings of the project was completed as of January 2024. Once all videos are uploaded and English subtitles are completed, they will be ready to watch in February 2024.
