Wikimania 2021/Scholarships/Wikimedia Korea/Report



Did you meet your goals? Are you happy with how the project went?

We think we met the goal. We originally planed to translate 3-5 Wikimania sessions into Korean, and we host 1-2 post-Wikimania meetups . We actually translated 3 Wikimania sessions into Korean, and one post-Wikimania meetup. We were able to share interesting Wikimanina videos with Korean Wikimedia Community.



Please report on your original project targets. Please be sure to review and provide metrics required for Rapid Grants.

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?

We translated the video into Korean, and host the meetup as we orinally planned. We succeussfully shared the videos in the meetup and on Korean Wikipedia. We discussed issues covered by the video in the meetup.

  • What did not work so well?

We accually planed to host separate two meetups to share the video and disscuss the topics. Unfortunetly, we had to postpone the offline event and hold the discussion meetup with our annual conference in November, becuase Covid-19 spread very fast in September.
