Projects do not always go according to plan. Sharing what you learned can help you and others plan similar projects in the future. Help the movement learn from your experience by answering the following questions:

  • What worked well?

Making sure I had active internet connection and following up with participants to guide and encourage them on how to make substantial edits, communication was key and also we had a Telegram group to share views on there.

  • What did not work so well?

Difficulty for participants to create their account and make edits. We encountered IP error message while trying to new create an account for New Participants. We later resolved it later by creating through meta.

  • What would you do differently next time?

Possibly stream our sessions and for our online members
