CIS-A2K <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/CIS-A2K> is planning to invest
some resources from May-June 2020 to create community movement resource
(CMR) materials in English and different Indic languages for Wikisource in
the form of tutorials, handbooks, infographics, videos, animations etc. The
aim of this initiative is to build a pool of resource materials for
Wikisource eventually, which will serve as ready-made handy references for
new as well as experienced users. You are requested to fill up this form
so that we can understand your needs on different topics of Wikisource. You
are also very welcome to actively participate in the process and help us
build the CMR with your different areas of expertise.

Hi Malayalam Wikisource Community,
As COVID-19 has forced the Wikimedia communities to stay at home and like
many other affiliates, CIS-A2K has decided to suspend all offline
activities till 15th September 2020 (or till further notice).I present to
you for an online training session for future coming months.
1. Wikisource Skill Share, a capacity-building initiative, where Indic
Wikisource contributors, both newcomers and experienced, can share
knowledge and skills with each other and clear confusions. Most of the
time, it will be done online on 1:1 basis, so it is just the right time to
participate there if you have not planned to do it or done it already.
Let's learn Wikisource together! I would like to invite experienced Indic
Wikisource contributors and sign your name at Willing to respond section
. Newcomer or any Indic Wikisource contributors are welcome to join the
session with your queries and doubts.
2. Intensive Personalized Training (or IPT), this also a
capacity-building initiative, where Indic Wikisource contributors,
especially newcomers could come with his/her queries and doubts. I, myself
will share my knowledge and skills with each contributor and clear
confusions. It will be done online on a 1:1 basis, so it is just the right
time to participate there if you have not planned to do so.
3. Online Proofread-edithon for all 12 Indic Wikisource language projects.
We are planning for an indic level online proofreadthon from 1 May 2020 to
10 May 2020. The book of the subject will be the classical literature of
your languages. We’ll share details about this in a separate email in a
couple of days.
