Thank you for posting this, Tinu.
Hisham, it is really heartening to know that we are making inroads into the higher education system of India beginning with these institutes.
Can you tell us more about the agreement that the WMF has entered into with the colleges? Thanks so much.
Strictly speaking, there's not been any agreement between WMF and any of the colleges. It's an MoU between WMF and individual teachers / professors. It outlines what we'd like them to do as part of the program and, on sucessful conclusion, we award them recognition in the form of a honorary "Wikipedia Teaching Fellowship." This is to acknowledge the additional efforts they have put in.
