Please feel free to join us on the adobe chat room seint.adobeconnect.com/wpeditathon/?launcher=false every Wednesday ! We will discuss about our work and support you with any issue about Wikipédia editing!

As a result of yesterday session, 3 articles have been created, 2 in French and 1 in English.

1. World Toilet Day translated in French

Re: Wikipedia Editing together with other SuSanA members every Wednesday

Today is the last Wednesday that the 4 Cranfield University students are editing Wikipedia for us in the virtual workroom (the students were doing their 10-week industry project with SuSanA, as part of their MSc work).

I think they've done an awesome job and have progressed the WASH topics on Wikipedia significantly in English and in French!

If you want to use the opportunity today to learn from them, to say hi, or to ask your own Wikipedia questions live, then come and join us in the virtual workroom TODAY.

Here is the link:
seint.adobeconnect.com/wpeditathon/

The students will be in the room from 2-6 pm GMT, and I am in the room on and off all day today.

This is the last Wednesday for the students but it would be easy to keep this tradition going if any SuSanA members want to make use of this virtual workroom to connect and to collaborate on Wikipedia editing. Just let me know?

And if you are a lecturer and have access to undergraduate or postgraduate students, how about setting up something similar with them?
Wikipedia has many tools and examples for setting up "Wikipedia editing assignments":
