WikiLearn: online learning platform

What is the WikiLearn platform?Edit

WikiLearn is a learning management platform that will host self-guided and live courses developed by and for the Wikimedia community.

Online learning is a one way the Community Development team can support Wikimedians across the movement and provide access to resources/tools related to capacity building and leadership development. WikiLearn makes it possible for volunteers to learn the skills related to capacity building and leadership development at their own pace.

WikiLearn is run by the Community Development team, and initially offers courses created by Foundation staff. As we continue to evolve some governance mechanisms for the platform, it will become open for contribution from all Wikimedia contributors.The current courses are published in English with potential translation possible in FY 22-23.

Current courses availableEdit

  1. Introduction to Building Partnerships - This course will provide an in-depth curriculum on how to develop meaningful programmatic and organizational partnerships within the movement and with external partners.
  2. Identify and Addressing Harassment - This short, introductory course will focus on developing skills that will help volunteers empathetically respond to online harassment .
