I'm fond of this cheatsheet for wiki mark-up, we use it in Ukrainian a lot
Is there anything similar in idea but focused on visual editing?
Maybe someone has designed such already. Some leaflet that can be printed
and distributed widely.
Thanks for help,

I am looking for a brochure or folder that informs teachers and staff of a
university about the advantages/benefits of using Wikipedia in the
classrooms, as well as why that is important, good to do, etc etc etc. In
other words, a brochure or folder that we can send out to universities to
convince. To avoid we invent the wheel, I would be happy to learn from what
others use (or know to be used elsewhere) for convincing the use of
Wikipedia. Does anyone have an example available?
(I do not see any brochure/folder of this kind linked on
We are planning (Netherlands) to create such one and I hope you can share
good examples with us.
Dear education colleagues,
I'm delighted to introduce the newest member of the WMF education team, Vahid
Masrour <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:VMasrour_(WMF)>. Vahid joins
as our Community Capacity Manager, and will be working with groups
like the Wikipedia
other global education program leaders and affiliates to make sure they
have the support they need to be successful.
Vahid will be working remotely from Quito, Ecuador for his first few months
before moving with his family to San Diego. A little more about Vahid in
his own words:
World citizen, with a strong experience in South America, I have resided in
> 6 countries so far, and plan to keep on moving. I am keenly interested in
> transformation of educational processes using technology as a lever. I have
> been part of the Ecuador User Group since its inception (2013), as the
> education program specialist, and am a firm believer that “Knowledge is as
> wings to man's life, and a ladder for his ascent. Its acquisition is
> incumbent upon everyone.”
Originally trained as a psychologist, I’ve been learning about community
> development through development projects and volunteer service. The overlap
> of my interests in education, technology and community development now
> finds a peculiarly interesting expression through my work at the WMF, where
> I can now serve by enabling a global community’s efforts towards the
> “growth, development and distribution of free, multilingual, educational
> content, and to providing the full content of these wiki-based projects to
> the public free of charge”.
Please join me in welcoming Vahid to the education team (on-list or on-wiki
