This term, we've started enhancing the Wikipedia training for students with interactive editing tutorials. Using the "guided tours" framework that was introduced to help newcomers find productive ways to get started, student editors can practice formatting text, creating links, and adding citations, with step-by-step instructions from [edit] to [Save page]. So far, feedback from the student editors has been very positive; many note the interactive tutorials as their favorite part of the training. Log into your Wikipedia account, then click here to try the first interactive tutorial.
