Dear Nemo, There is, of course, other documentation on mediawiki already.
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Education_Program https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikipedia_Education_Program However, having additional how-to type pages in the help namespace is a great idea. I didn't realize that there were not already any help pages on mediawiki about the education program extension. Thank you for pointing that out. We can plan to add some. It is my understanding that Meta and Outreach wikis actually are appropriate places to share information about the this extension in these contexts. On Meta wiki, that page is part of the Learning Pattern Library, and as such, it explains a "problem" that the extension "solves". On Outreach wiki, that page provides information for education program volunteers who might be wish to more learn about it in order to work with their communities to enable it on their projects. It is true that much of the information, on Outreach, in particular, is somewhat technical in nature, and somewhat duplicative of information that is available on mediawiki.org, but that is that something I am working on updating and improving. I welcome your input on that process; we could discuss it on the talk page. Kind regards, Anna -- Anna Koval, M.Ed.
