Hello Offline Community -
I just wanted to direct your attention to the offline portal on the
meta-wiki that is to be used to track all offline projects! It can be
found here: http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Offline_Projects
. The goal
is that this becomes the central place where all the offline materials
and lessons learned will be codified and available for access.
There are a variety of ways to contribute to the site (which is
certainly still WIP) - whether uploading guides, content, processes,
contacts. In particular, I wanted to solicit help in populating a map
designed to capture where all the offline distributions have taken
place. Right now we have little idea the full landscape of offline
deployments, and it would be great to see this!
A Google Map
was set up to track these deployments . There are a few examples
already on it, but for each location we would basically want to include:
* Number of offline distributions: (i.e., #computers)
* Number impacted: (e.g., # of students + teachers)
* Content: (e.g., "Wikipedia for Schools")
* Language: (e.g., "English")
* Contact: (e.g., "Jessie Wild" (or usernames))
* Other/Notes: (if applicable)
If you need help populating the map, please let me know, and I am happy
to send instructions on how to do so.
Let me know what questions you have! And please do contribute to the
wiki in whatever way you think is most valuable: reorganizing, uploading
content, data, etc.
