Re: [Wikimedia-l] Announcing the Wikidata Query Service Tutorial

2020-10-29 Thread Revital Poleg
 Dear all,

Just a quick update to last week's message: We are delighted by the
response to our announcement about the Wikidata Query Service (WDQS)
tutorial <https://wdqs-tutorial.toolforge.org/>. We already received
requests for collaboration to translate the tutorial into Italian,
Macedonian  and Indonesian!

If you want to know what is required to create the tutorial website in your
language please contact Dr. Keren Shatzman , WMIL's
project coordinator, who leads this project.


You can also read about the background and context in which the tutorial
was developed in an interview with Dr. Shatzman, featured on the Wikimedia
Foundation blog
<https://diff.wikimedia.org/2020/10/21/the-query-service-tutorial-for-wikidata-an-interview-with-dr-keren-shatzman-from-wikimedia-israel/>
.


Happy Wikidata Birthday  


Revital Poleg

Executive Director, WMIL

[Wikimedia-l] Announcing the Wikidata Query Service Tutorial

2020-10-21 Thread Revital Poleg
In 2019 Wikimedia Israel (WMIL) decided to develop instructional material
for the Wikidata Query Service (WDQS). The background for this decision was
that we see audiences to whom we introduce Wikidata become especially
enthusiastic when we present the *Wikidata query service tutorial
<https://wdqs-tutorial.toolforge.org/> *, which offers quite a
unique feature within the landscape of information services available
today. This enthusiasm often dampens when audiences discover that querying
is not done using natural language but rather requires learning SPARQL.

We believe learning SPARQL is not rocket science, even for audiences with
no programming background. We created a step-by-step tutorial website to
give users an introduction and some basic lessons on how to use the query
service. While WDQS has a great Help section, this section might not be so
helpful to users who are new to Wikimedia platforms. We therefore built the
tutorial website on the WordPress platform which has a more familiar design
to most users. We believe this website will make the WDQS more accessible,
and hope this will be a way to expand Wikidata to new audiences.
Currently the site is in English but we are open for collaborations to add
the tutorial in other languages.
We are also keen to hear feedback from those involved in Wikidata Outreach.

We hope you'll find it useful.
All the Best

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Leadership change at Wikimedia Israel

2019-12-20 Thread Revital Poleg
Dear friends,

Thank you so much for your warm welcome.

I feel honored to join the Wikimedia family as the new ED of WMIL and to
become part of this devoted team that works continuously to make the
Wikimedia vision a reality.



My personal thanks and appreciation to you, Michal, for introducing me to
the impressive work done at WMIL under your leadership. You left your mark
on the organization, and I am sure that you will continue to do so,
wherever you choose to be.



I look forward to working with you all, colleagues, volunteers and staff, with
the goal of continuing to develop and strengthen WMIL in anticipation of
the challenges and opportunities that are expected in the future.

Best Regards

Revital
