If you have 3-5 minutes today, read Melissa's article about Unit 1 of the
Greenhouse Online Course! We're really proud of the student engagement in
the forums and assignments--we've learned so much from all of you! Keep up
the wonderful work, we can't wait to review Unit 2.

I'm thrilled to introduce a new instructional tool available for Arabic
readers and editors globally! After two years of brainstorming and planning
, the instructional website Wiki Warsha ويكي ورشة is out! This is yet
another step for Wikimedia Israel in developing instructional tools.
Wikiwarsha.org <http://wikiwarsha.org/> is a multimedia instructional
website designed to introduce Wikipedia to Arabic readers, to invite new
editors to write and edit content on Arabic Wikipedia, to assist teachers
in school activities, and instructors in editing workshops.
Warsha is the Arabic word for ‘workshop’, the website includes short
instructional films, texts and images and is divided into 13 informative
and instructional lessons:
-Wikipedia homepage structure
-About Wikipedia articles
-Sign in to a registered account
-Create a userpage
-Create a new article
-Edit an article
-Formatting the article
-Request edits approval on Arabic Wikipedia
-Adding internal and external links
In addition to those lessons, the website contains informative sections
about copyright issues, FAQs, good article criteria, and talk pages, all in
order to facilitate understanding how Wikipedia communities function.
