The First Wikipedia Education Program in Hong Kong

Snippet: Wikimedia Hong Kong is working on the very first Wikipedia Education Program.

Wikimedia Hong Kong is working on its very first Wikipedia Education Program. We are happy to begin the program with the School of Humanities at Hang Seng Management College. Students from the college were invited to edit at least 30 articles about literature and linguistics on Wikipedia. Articles related to literature and linguistics are not as numerous as other topics. Some articles have incomplete information too. We hope that students will share their knowledge to improve the quantity and the quality of the related pages through this program. At the same time, we hope to educate students about how to use Wikipedia with the appropriate attitude. In March, we had an introductory talk for the students. A workshop about editing Wikipedia was organised in April. This program is still in progress. We look forward to reporting back about its progress.
