We have a range of resources for designing Wikipedia assignments and introducing students to different aspects of Wikipedia. Instructors who run major Wikipedia assignments can be designated Wikipedia Teaching Fellows and are eligible for support from trained Wikipedia Ambassadors.

Wikipedia Campus Ambassadors provide face-to-face Wikipedia training and support on university campuses, particularly in classes where the instructors are incorporating Wikipedia-editing into the curriculum. You don't need to be a Wikipedia expert beforehand to volunteer for this role; you just need a passion for teaching and enthusiasm about Wikipedia (Learn more about Campus Ambassadors).

Wikipedia Online Ambassadors serve as mentors, advisors, and helpers to the professors and students who are using Wikipedia in the classroom. Most of our Online Ambassadors are long-term Wikipedians who can answer almost every question related to the technical aspects of editing, Wikipedia culture and processes. Students have told us that the mentoring from Online Ambassadors has been "tremendously helpful" for understanding Wikipedia and for making the first edits (Learn more about Online Ambassadors).
