Snippet: +100 articles were edited by WikiStudia students in the first round of the project.

WikiStudia is a project coordinated by the Ukrainian Wikipedia community and Ukrainian universities aiming to gathering the students of each field of study to edit the related articles on Wikipedia on the basis of Wikipedia Education Program.

This month, students in Ukraine wrapped up their first WikiStudia course. 36 students from T.H.Shevchenko Chernihiv State Pedagogical University enrolled in this course with 6 teachers who assigned their students to edit more than 100 articles on the Ukrainian Wikipedia. Throughout the course, teachers held 7 extensive lessons and seminars to give students the needed guidance on encyclopedic writing for Wikipedia.

The workshops were over by the end of April and the organizers are now getting the certificates ready for students. At least 16 students were able to qualify for the project certificate. A certificate will be awarded to any student that was able to add at least 3 Kilobyte content and make +50 edits to the article namespace on the Ukrainian Wikipedia.
