Educational ProgrammeEdit

Education Programme

Goals met by this activity

All the plans this quarter was stopped.

Some considerations

We were forced to stop this subject for the safety of potentional participants because of COVID-19.

CommunityEdit

Editing competition

Goals met by this activity

This quarter we organized 2 editing competitions with an outcome of 282 created and 1 improved articles by 21 editors who participated.

Some considerations

We organised the annual contest "CEE Spring 2020". Then starting in April, the next editing competion was with collaboration of GLAM Macedonia users groups. It was organised for persons from 15 to 18 years old from April 15 to May 15. No certain theme was chosen and the title was "Necessary Articles". This means that participants were guided by a specific article that enlists which articles should and can be created.

Edit-a-thons

Goals met by this activity

Not organised

Editing weekends

Goals met by this activity

13 editing weekends were made and the results are: 55 participations in total that achieved 274 new articles created and 5 improved ones.

Some considerations

Because of canceling many contact project, we multiplied the editing challenges such as this one. So 13 were organised this quarter. The production was 274 created and 5 improved articles.

Editing days

Goals met by this activity

Same thing for the 24 hour challenge. This quarter acumulated 21 days of editing, participated 73 times. Considering that, 159 new articles and 4 improved articles were the finish results.

Wiki Skatch

Goals met by this activity

Two users were largely activated through this project. Many articles of Archaeology, fiction books, fiction media and music bands got covered. As of April to June, 256 articles got created and four being improved. In addition, 11 templates were created plus one existing was expanded.

Some considerations

Because of the indoor situation, we had to make sessions via Team Viewer and by that, we were more in reach with the volunteers. That's why we had the best results this year using this project plus the big interest of the two volunteers.

Partnerships

Goals met by this activity

Additional 10 photographs of exhibits, were uploaded and put on their respective articles, of the Museum of Tobacco. Also 6 images were uploaded of one Memorial Museum and one Memorial Home that are departments of the main Museum of Prilep.

In April we got an idea to gatter images of the curfews in Macedonia and to put them on suitable articles. We contacted a photographer from the town of Kumanovo who told us to upload them in his name. So seven images are currently visible on Wikipedia about the Kumanovo curfew during the first wave pandemic in our Republic.

Some considerations

The curfew images are not listed in the annual plan considering that the plan was made previously. We wanted to use the space of lack of activities and to be a bit active.
