Advanced Wikipedia

Advanced Wikipedia

“Wiki Education gave me the opportunity to experience this cumulative phenomenon of shared learning and a public approach to knowledge firsthand, all while cooperating with others equally committed to the team task.” *

Alumni of our Wikipedia professional development courses have the opportunity to deepen their understanding of and engagement with Wikipedia by applying Good Article standards to high-impact articles relevant to their fields of study.

The work it takes to apply Good Article standards to important, high-value Wikipedia articles can often take more time than a single volunteer can offer. This advanced-level course offers a collaborative solution, engaging 5-10 participants over 6 weeks in focused and impactful work editing an article of mutual interest. A certificate will be awarded through Accredible upon successful completion of the course.
