2323 Broadway (near the 19th St. BART station). Lunch and refreshments will
Since 2012, we've been working to strengthen Wikipedia's coverage of OER
and related topics. We've worked to build an international community around
this goal at conferences, through our online "Writing Wikipedia Articles"
(WIKISOO) course, and through the formation of WikiProject Open.
At the Barn Raising, we will focus on improving high-priority Wikipedia
articles, and consider ways to strengthen WikiProject Open as a resource
for staying connected, learning, and working together. We'll also welcome
online participants from around the world, with collaboration tools and
scheduled video check-ins.
