Respected Sir/Madam,

Greetings from Wikimedia India Chapter. We are pleased to let you know we
can arrange a talk/lecture on Wikipedia at your college if you could arrange
a lab for 3 hours with some students. Below is the sample call for program
and we can structure the agenda based on the below one. We could also
include specific areas within Wikipedia in the agenda which your students
might be interested in.(Ex:- Wikipedia as media resource for journalism
students / Technical talk on Wikipedia for Computer Science students) We
could send a local Wikipedian to talk about Wikipedia and how students can
benefit out of it by knowing more than just a site to get assignment notes.
Please let us know if you are interested.we are interested please tell us
what to do
