Good afternoon (or evening), ambassadors!
As most of you know, the semester is underway at most universities in the
US and Canada, and many of our professors have begun assigning their
Wikipedia components to students. Thank you to all who have been responsive
to the call to join the IRC chatrooms whenever available, as some students
have started asking questions in there.
This semester, some professors have reached out to Online Ambassadors via
the OA page on the USEP or CEP portals, and some OAs have selected classes
that interest them by adding their names via the Course Pages.
For those of you who are still available to support one or more classes
this semester, we still have some courses who need Online Ambassadors to
meet this semester's standards for participation.
I've edited the OA talk
a list of the courses that need Online Ambassadors. The links should
take you to the course pages, where you can read about the class and
determine if you're able to support it over the next few months. Students
will likely start selecting articles and begin editing in the next few
weeks, so we need to finalize ambassador support as soon as possible.
If you select a course to support, please add your username to the Course
Pages and revise the OA talk page with the new number of OAs that class may
Some professors are adding their course pages randomly, so I will continue
updating the OA talk page whenever possible, so we can try to support as
many classes as possible this semester.
Thanks for all you do for the Wikipedia Education Program!
Happy course selecting,
