Wikipedia India Education Program



The Symbiosis School of Economics has joined several other Pune colleges in participating in the Wikipedia India Education Program, a pilot initiative launched by the Wikimedia Foundation this year. The Wikipedia India Education Program is designed to encourage professors and teachers in Pune to join a growing global community of educators who use Wikipedia as a teaching and learning tool in their classrooms. Universities and colleges chosen for the pilot will have the opportunity to participate in the early stages of an innovative educational model that enables students to contribute to the world’s largest online encyclopedia while increasing the breadth and quality of information found in this important global public resource.

Several presentations have already been conducted at the Symbiosis School of Economics, which has almost 250 students participating. In the coming weeks students will select Wikipedia articles related to their class subjects and then write additional material for these articles throughout the semester. For more information, and to see which classes are participating, please see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:India_Education_Program.

The efforts taken by the SSE students and faculty alike in this WIKI outreach programme was recognized in The Times of India Crest Edition, Monday, September 12, 2011.
