Editing articles on Wikipedia need a series of learning sessions and practice. Most people fail to edit an article for the first time when the attend a editing workshop. So there is a need of hand holding needed for the new editors after the attend a session and go back. It is essential to show them the actual editing process in really simple manner so that they can practice the same and learn. Simple audio/video tutorials and handouts are easier to understand and implement rather than text based conversation. This projects aims on imparting the process of editing for new editors. A series of multilingual videos will be created and shared with the community which they can use while reaching out to participants of workshops they conduct or new editors.
