> Hi Folks
> Here's a report on the Wikipedia India Education Program: http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Foundation_-_India_Programs/India_…
> In (very) short summary, it's been an action packed 4-5 weeks, the team has done a huge amount of groundwork - and there appears to be significant potential. Do go through the report for further details.
> ...I've tried to make the report as interesting to read as possible - and focus on the learnings and implications for a national roll-out (instead of making it a random list summarising various activities.)
> Do let me have your views on the mailing lists or the Talk Page.
> (A project page has also been set up at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Pune but I hasten to add that it is in early stages of construction. ...but do keep visiting it. Finger crossed, it's going to get very busy, very soon!)
> I'd like to thank everyone from the community who have helped out so amazingly!

I saw this at
* "I hope you won't delete it, because I won't get a grade for it..."
* "But Please please please don't delete it till wednesday evening, than
after that if it's still wrong you can delete it."
Wen evening was the 6th. The student last edits are from the 6th.
Oh, and it appears that it is a class by one of those instructors who
don't really "grok" Wikipedia (assigning students to write articles on
potentially non-notable article, lack of participation in Wikipedia
On a constructive note, I wonder if we should try to contact people at
Bremen who may know who taught the course, so they can be informed about
our programs? I'd bet on the student following our suggestions and
passing the info on the projects to the professor.
