Education Extension scheduled deprecation[edit]

Author: Vahid Masrour (WMF)

Summary: It's high time to move to the Programs & Events Dashboard!

As was announced in our January and February Newsletters, June 30 is when the Education Extension is being taken out of all wikis. This step is taken for security reasons.

Thus, we invite all Education Program Leaders (and users of the Education Extension) to take the online training for the dashboard so that you can benefit from this tool and make your work easier.

Did you know you can also use the P&E Dashboard at edit-a-thons, writing competitions, and other Wiki-based activities? More training courses for the dashboard are available here, so take a look!

Do you need to communicate with us about this?

If you have comments or questions, please reach out to the Education Team at education AT, or the Programs and Events Dashboard group at dashboard AT If you use Phabricator, you can also go to: You are also welcome to share questions+comments on
