What is the relationship between wikiedu.org and WMF education programme

asked 2015-12-16 08:22:22 -0600

Hi!

I found your website while browsing, and found some interesting materials here. I'm wondering what is your relationship with the Wikimedia Foundation Education Programme, of which I was aware earlier?

Links here https://outreach.wikimedia.org/wiki/E...; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikiped...

Do you use each others materials, do you share expertise? Do you share goals and assignments?

Thanks!

The Wiki Education Foundation (Wiki Ed) is an independent, grant-supported non-profit institution which supports the use of Wikipedia and Wikimedia projects in higher education contexts across the United States and Canada. It is based in The Presidio of San Francisco. The executive director is Frank Schulenburg. For the purpose of differentiation, we do not use “the foundation,” “Wiki Edu,” “WEF” or “Wikipedia Education Foundation.” (“Wiki Ed” is acceptable on second reference).

The Wikipedia Education Program was created by the Wikimedia Foundation (WMF) in 2010. It is designed to support instructors who create Wikipedia assignments for their classroom. The Wikipedia Education Program is global in scope. The WMF supports this program outside of the USA and Canada with tools, resources and other materials. The Wiki Education Foundation (Wiki Ed) is distinct from the Wikipedia Education Program. Wiki Ed is focused exclusively on supporting the Wikipedia Education Program within the USA and Canada.
