Where to start: Before the lab

Have students create their user accounts prior to the lab. You can download, print and pass out the "Welcome to Wikipedia" brochure the week before. It has instructions for how to create a user account.

Some key reasons for having students create user account before the lab include:

  • Students can read Wikipedia's username policy and consider how anonymous they want to be on the site.
  • Creating an account prior to class helps to avoids triggering the automatic limits placed on creating numerous accounts from the same location in a short time period.
