By default, only English Wikipedia contributions are tracked. To enable tracking for another language, you can add that language to the 'tracked wikis' field of the course page. Click 'Edit Details' to make changes to the tracked wikis. Once an additional wiki is added, it will pick up any contributions to that wiki the next time the Dashboard updates that course.

Can I remove the grading portion altogether? I already have it accounted for on my course syllabus and don't want to confuse students.

UPDATE: The 'Graded' checkbox and the 'Points' for a given block on the Timeline are no longer features of the Wiki Education Dashboard. (They were little used, and not flexible enough for the people who did want to use the Dashboard to keep track of the grading breakdown.)

2018-08-27 10:28:43 -0500 answered a question Why is my course design repeating introductory blocks at the end of the course schedule?

Hmm... it looks your course page somehow ended up with two copies of the timeline. There must have been some glitch that submitted your choices twice during the setup process.

You can delete the extra copies at the end, or delete the entire timeline and then go through the setup wizard again.

Sorry for the glitch!

2018-04-05 16:14:53 -0500 answered a question How can I translate Wiki Education Training resources?

Translating of the outreachdashboard.wmflabs.org training materials happens on Meta. Here's the index of slides: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Train...

It's also possible, as was the case with those German modules, to create new modules from scratch rather than translate existing ones. There's no good documentation of this yet, though.

How do my students add their Wikipedia usernames to the course page? The site is asking me for a code. DO I get this from my instructor? How do course participants add their usernames to the course page?

How do I check to see if my students are completing the assignments I have given them? E.g., have they done the online training or have they edited an article?

2017-10-05 14:58:31 -0500 answered a question delete the "week" banner

Thanks for the feedback! That's not possible currently, but one option would be to arrange the timeline so that all the blocks are shown in the same week, or in the first week of the set of weeks you want to combine. That would make it more clear that for your class the week-by-week schedule is not intended to be a strict timeline.
