Education/Newsletter/April 2014/Consolidation of Portals and newsletter for the Global Education Program

Work has begun to improve communication and other information available to those working with Wikipedia in education. The new Education portal brings together or replaces the (at least) 8 different education-related landing pages on Outreach wiki. Changes has already been made to the design of the portal and work in being done to update and keep updated the information it contains. This new design is intended to bring together the latest list of education projects and programs across the world, information for starting a new program or joining an existing one, the best resources for instructors or volunteers working on education projects, and an easy to get in touch with program leaders. The Education Cooperative will be working to complete and update the portal, and help in improving it is most welcome. Some specific ways to help include:

  • Improving the set of images in the main photo wall of the portal, and adding captions to them;
  • Selecting the best existing education resources for the Resources tab of the portal; and
  • Making sure the information about any projects or program(me)s you work on are list on the Programs tab and have up-to-date information.

There is now also just one official global newsletter (this one!), primarily to support those already working with Wikipedia in education in some form. Please add suggestions or questions about this newsletter to its talk page at Talk:Education/Newsletter/Newsroom
