In November, Wikimedia Serbia established cooperation with the Faculty of Dramatic Arts of the University of Arts in Belgrade, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Belgrade and Teacher Education Faculty of the University of Belgrade, which have not been included in the Wikipedia Education Program previously. Within these three collaborations, more than a 100 students have been trained in editing Wikipedia and became familiar with the principles of Wikipedia. These bachelor and master students will write articles on Wikipedia in the field of Creative Technology, Agricultural Machinery and Educational Technology. "Students of the Teacher Education Faculty will create articles on Wikipedia to acquire new skills and knowledge in the field of Educational technology as well as editing Wiki content. In accordance with the set educational goals, one compulsory and two optional faculty courses adopted changes in order to include writing articles on Wikipedia. Students, thanks to an interesting and high-quality workshop held by Wikimedia Serbia, successfully went through training, and their reactions are positive", said Miroslav Ristic, professor at the Teacher Education Faculty. Another novelty is that students have gone through a Wikipedia editing workshop in the Visual Editor, which is more intuitive and easy to use.
