Summary: During October, four online training programs were held by Wikimedians of Albanian Language User Group for high school students across Kosovo. The training programs are a continuation of the collaboration with KEC (Kosovo Education Center), which started earlier this year. Eight more training programs on wiki projects are expected to be delivered by the end of the year.
Starting from October, members of the Wikimedians of Albanian Language User Group as part of a collaboration with KEC (Kosovo Education Center), have started delivering online training on Wikimedia projects for high school students across Kosovo. The online training programs are taking place in Zoom and the first four were intended to introduce and teach students to edit Wikipedia. In each of these sessions approximately 40 students from four schools participated and were instructed on the following topics:
- the basic rules and principles of editing Wikipedia
- how to create a new article
- how to edit an existing article
- how to translate an article using the Content Translation Tool
Our plans are to continue these online training programs on two other wiki projects: Wikidata and Commons by the end of the year, and if the conditions allow next year to continue these meetings offline.
