Nou curs ‘School of Open’: Writing Wikipedia Articles: The Basics and Beyond

La School of Open és un projecte coordinat per Creative Commons i Peer to Peer University, P2PU. Ofereix cursos online i gratuits sobre diferents aspectes relacionats amb la cultura digital i la creació de continguts oberts. En aquest cas, us volem fer la informació relativa a un curs sobre l’edició d’articles a Wikipedia, que comença el 19 de març. Avancem una mica de la informació que podeu trobar a la pàgina web del curs:

Writing Wikipedia Articles: The Basics and Beyond

“This will be one of several facilitated, synchronous courses marking the launch of the School of Open, a new venture of Peer to Peer University. Instructor Pete Forsyth, a veteran Wikipedia contributor and trainer, will lead live webinars every Tuesday. We will also feature experts in Wikipedia editing and in open educational resources in two roundtable sessions. Students will work on Wikipedia articles throughout the course, and share their experiences contributing to the largest collaborative project in human history.

The course will run from 19 March to 23 April, at 15:30 GMT. The timing should work well for the Americas (morning) and Europe and Africa (afternoon). We plan to offer the course a second time, starting in late April or early May, at a time that works better for Australia and Asia.

Want to learn a bit about Wikipedia? Or would you like to find a way to make its articles relating to OER more accurate and informative? Join the course today! We look forward to working with you.
