This is for students needing to complete community service hours. Most of these are undergraduates completing degree requirements but it also includes some International Baccelaureate students as well.

This is geared toward more tradtional academic work with classes, but it also includes activities with Semana i and other projects such as the Day of the Dead photo contest sponsored by the campus library system.

This is a pilot project in which Tec de Monterrey collaborates with select students from various local primaries schools to document local neighbhorhoods in Wikipedia and other projects.

The Mexico City campus has donated almost 2,000 photographs from the archives of the campus newspaper, Talento Tec.

Wiki Metrics


Spring 2018 Ciudad de México


Rebuilding of the campus and the Wiki Learning program continues this semester. For various reasons, we have decided not to renew our user group affiliation status although we continue as an independent education program.

Two groups of students doing Wiki work for social service hours under the names of Wikiservicio and Creative Commoners (for multimedia projects).

Fall 2017 Ciudad de México

One of the projects finished this semester.

Wiki Learning in this semester was severely affected by the two earthquakes that struck Mexico during September 2017. The affects in Chiapas limited a project there, but the main consequence was the near-total destruction of the Mexico City campus, where most Wiki Learning activities take place. It resulted in the cancelation of 3 Wiki projects planned for the annual Semana i week student projects on that campus.

However, work continued with students in a couple of classes and in the two groups of students earning "servicio social" community service hours. These include the termination of a couple of semesters-long video projects. Servicio social work is shifting away from writing in Spanish Wikipedia to multimedia work directly benefiting Wikimedia Commons.

  • 2 classes with 1 teachers and 39 students
  • 2 groups of servicio social with 32 students total
  • 45 articles improved in Spanish Wikipedia
  • 15 articles translated from English to Spanish
  • 307 photographs
  • Videos, gifs and animations files (finished)

These numbers were taken from the Dashboard tool. It is unknown how accurate they are. We know that somewhere between 30 and 40% of articles created or modified by students this semester were erased or reverted by a group of users in Spanish Wikipedia. We had no problems in any other project.
