I really like this idea. Thanks Tom!
I would like to invite you all to make a short video using your own
computer saying why you have joined the Wikipedia Education Program
and the benefits you have found for your students.
During my last presentations to professors around Brazil, I've started
to show these two short videos, one of professor Juliana Bastos in a
TV news, and the other of professor Pablo Ortellado I made with my
I can always see the positive reactions on the other professors faces.
I don't believe it needs to be too professional, just say with your
heart. I remember the first time I publish one video of professor
Juliana on my facebook, 5 professors came talk to me. I think that
would be a good way to persuade other professors on all the important
issues involved in building an free encyclopedia.
