Project idea edit

There are a lot of students worried on Plagiarism relatied Wikipedia and confused how Wikipedia could help on their acadmic essays. The Wikipedia 101 is design for students who'd like to use Wikipedia correctly and effectivly but avoid problem on Plagiarism. At the same time, the class will show the attendents the idea of copyright of Wikipedia and other important issues of Wikipedia. So that if any of them would like to join Wikipedia, the course can give them a basic introduction on the idea of Wikipedia to avoid problems many newcomers will have.
