Thank you, Nitika. "It will consist of a group of 3-4 UG and/or PG student who will contribute to the Indian content on Wikipedia & Wikimedia sister project. The steps include outreach programs on “How to contribute to Wikipedia?” & will spread information about “Wikimedia and its projects”. This program is going to be based on Group activity. The plan is to create Wiki community within an Educational Institute." I understand that in order to get buy-in from the institute around this initiative there is a need to specifically mention the academic levels which would be involved. But truly, what is required is a degree of competence and consistent contributions from the participants to be able to generate a positive outcome from this effort. Is there a way that topics like "How to begin thinking about making your first page on Wikipedia?" or, "How Wikipedia communities work?" be captured as a talk so as to achieve some form of consistency. Language communities can help provide the closed captions if the talk is intended to be made available in as many Indian languages as possible. It would also mean that "Record one video in their native language on “How to edit on Wikipedia?” and share it on YouTube and social networking sites." has a standard base-line to work from. The outcome (or, results?) section states "Renewed Contribution to Wikipedia. Increase in Wikipedia & related workshops all over India Increase in Strength of overall Indian Community." Perhaps these need to be articulated a bit more with specifics. Additionally, the current form of the plan does not mitigate the risks that were observed in the IEP/Pune_Effort. Most importantly, it currently does not indicate how the existing Wikipedian community will be participating in each of the initiatives/pilots and, be invested in ensuring success. I am assuming that this is perhaps the first draft from Abhinav. I'll wait till there is a formal draft being put forth for feedback. /sankarshan -- sankarshan mukhopadhyay <https://twitter.com/#!/sankarshan> _______________________________________________ Wikimediaindia-l mailing list Wikimediaindiafirstname.lastname@example.org To unsubscribe from the list / change mailing preferences visit https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimediaindia-l
