It's fascinating how diverse these tutorials are, especially that they
serve a similar purpose, thank you very much for sharing!

At Wikimedia Israel we have been developing an instructional website in
Arabic called Wiki Warsha ويكي ورشة ("wiki workshop"). The tutorials
consist of multimedia elements (video, text, images), and are divided into
13 chapters taking into account the particularities of Arabic Wikipedia.
The tutorials provide self-learners and new comers with basic information
on the following: Wikipedia homepage structure, About Wikipedia
articles, Creating
an account, Signing with a registered account, Creating a userpage, Writing
a new article, Editing an article, Formatting the article, Adding image, Adding
internal and external links, Adding references, Adding categories, Request
edits approval on Arabic Wikipedia.
The choice to make video, text and image tutorials in a website format was
made in order ensure access on different devices including smartphones and
tablets, and to make the web content accessible to people with disabilities

Attaching in the link a sample draft of one of the videos we are working
on, Adding images:

In the past, the chapter has developed an interactive courseware in Hebrew
which has proved to be successful. The courseware is divided into four
chapters: 1) The interface 2) Editing article and userpage 3) Talk and
community 4) Adding images. For example, Link: Editing interface
