  • Wikimedia:Starting an education program - step-by-step instructions for planning a new education program

"For educators" portal[edit]

  • Education/For educators - An overview of reasons to do Wikipedia writing assignments and the resources for educators that are available
    • Education/Reasons to use Wikipedia - list of benefits for students, possible learning outcomes, and commons challenges for Wikipedia assignments
    • Education/Assignment Design - short descriptions of and links to three education brochures (Instructor Basics, Case Studies, and The Syllabus) and another description and link for the "for educators" training on English Wikipedia. For more in-depth material about assignment design options, see Educators_Orientation_Resources/Classroom#Wikipedia_Assignments_Types
    • Education/The Syllabus - the wiki version of the example syllabus, last updated to match the November 2012 print edition, along with a list of selected syllabi from previous courses (primarily from the Public Policy Initiative)
    • Education/Materials for Teaching - a collection of things that can be used in courses: inspirational videos, tools for generating excitement (like live streams of edits, and page view stats), some of the instructional handouts that are referenced in the syllabus, and some supplementary screencasts that aren't used in the trainings.
    • Education/Case Studies - the wiki version of the Case Studies, with a link for people to create new case studies using the same template.
