The Basics & Beyond". Sara is a co-organizer of the course and a member of
WikiProject Open <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:OPEN>. Both

The School of Open will offer its popular "Writing Wikipedia

WIKISOO students learn about the values and culture that have driven
hundreds of thousands of volunteers to build Wikipedia. Through their work
in the course, they join an effort that has generated millions of free
articles in hundreds of languages since 2001.The course covers the
technical skills needed to edit articles, and also offers practical
insights into the site's collaborative norms and social dynamics. Students
graduate with a sophisticated understanding of how to use Wikipedia both as
a reader and as an active participant.

The course focuses on articles about openness in education: open
educational 
resources<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_educational_resources>(OER),
MOOCs <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MOOCs>, Creative
Commons<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Creative_Commons>
licenses <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Creative_Commons_license> and more.
Students will forge connections with WikiProject
Open<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:OPEN>,
a community of volunteers focused on this topic area. Upon successful
completion, students earn the WIKISOO Burba
Badge<http://badges.p2pu.org/en/badge/view/22/>
.

The course is sponsored by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and the
University of Mississippi. Course instructors are:
