Subject: [Wikimedia Education] an example of "dreaded" students mentality
I saw this at
* "I hope you won't delete it, because I won't get a grade for it..."
* "But Please please please don't delete it till wednesday evening, than
after that if it's still wrong you can delete it."
Wen evening was the 6th. The student last edits are from the 6th.
Oh, and it appears that it is a class by one of those instructors who
don't really "grok" Wikipedia (assigning students to write articles on
potentially non-notable article, lack of participation in Wikipedia
On a constructive note, I wonder if we should try to contact people at
Bremen who may know who taught the course, so they can be informed about
our programs? I'd bet on the student following our suggestions and
passing the info on the projects to the professor.
