Getting started

While there are a variety of tutorials online about how to edit Wikipedia—including an Orientation for students that parallels this one—it is often more effective to take students into a computer lab and do a hands-on introduction to wiki mark-up.

For the students, this:

  • allows them to see editing take place "live"
  • gives them a safe space to make mistakes
  • allows them to ask questions in real-time

If you are serving as a Wikipedia Campus Ambassador, organizing and running such a lab session can be part of your role.
