    • With Center for Aboriginal Studies , Wikimedia Taiwan is establishing an introductory course in Ethnology. Forty eight students, most of them are freshmen from the Department of Ethnology at National Chen-Chi University, will be editing articles on Chinese Wikipedia between March and June 2015. Articles are about cultural and ethno-linguistic groups world-wide. Each student is designated an article about a different ethnicity. At the end of the semester, each of the students will complete the translation of an article about their assigned ethno-linguistic group. Reke Wang will be teaching the students about the culture of Wikipedia so that they can communicate with the community and basic editing skills needed for translating articles. He will also be providing online support to the students during the academic term. The course has ended and a brief report is on Wikimedia Blog
