An introduction to Wikipedia’s policies and guidelines
This module is intended to provide an overview of Wikipedia’s core policies and guidelines. You will get to know a little about the basic rules for how Wikipedia works.
By the end of this section, you should be able to answer:
- What are Wikipedia's core policies and guidelines?
- How are copyright and plagiarism handled on Wikipedia?
We have designed this module primarily for professors/instructors who are either new to Wikipedia or have limited exposure to the Wikipedia community. If you already have a firm grasp of Wikipedia's core policies, you can skip ahead:
- Module 3: Editing basics (including information on training students)
- Module 4: Using Wikipedia in your classroom.
