Education; Libraries; Museums; Maps, Earth
The Education Program Extension has been installed on the Dutch Wikipedia. This extension can be used for all kinds of courses, varying from short event like edit-a-thons to longer courses. Several volunteers are currently writing documentation for future users of the extension and their specific roles (teacher, student, etc.).
Wiki loves Libraries
The Eemland library in Amersfoort wil host monthly Wikipedia training sessions for at least 6 months. Dick Bos, a local volunteer of Wikimedia Nederland, will act as trainer on location. This cooperation is a pilot. If the pilot is successful, Wikimedia Nederland will try to start up more long running training sessions with local volunteers in libraries.
Augmented Reality in Museums
Wikimedia Nederland had been granted funding for a project concerning augmented reality in museums. This project can be seen as a continuation of the AR project in Barcelona.
Wikipedians in Residence / Maps project
The Dutch Wikipedians in Residence (WiR's) have had their monthly meeting in March. The notes of this meeting are publicly available. The WiR's are cooperating in a project about maps.
Wiki loves Earth
A group of users have started with the preparations of Wiki Loves Earth in the Netherlands during the months May and June. Wiki Loves Earth in the Netherlands is focused on the national parks we work together with. We already plan activities in the national parks during the project.
