Interesting news..Thought to share ...
Wish if we could get this Wikiculture to India , among our students &
academia ...

*URI oceanography students target Wikipedia entries*

*University of Rhode Island students are using what they've learned and
updating dozens of oceanography entries on Wikipedia.*
*Susanne Menden-Deuer, a professor at the university's Graduate School of
Oceanography, said she's asked her students to identify a biological
oceanography term or topic and improve the entry. She said students could
also create a new Wikipedia entry for terms not yet included on the free
online encyclopedia.*
*One student, Conor McManus of Milton, Mass., updated the Wikipedia page on
stable isotope analysis in aquatic ecosystems.*
*He said he chose it because he had learned a little about it as an
undergraduate and wanted to learn more. *
