Wikimedia in Education

As COVID-19 increases calls for #OpenEd, readers may be interested in this new report about Wikimedia (a hub for public domain educational content that is often used in classroom settings). Created by Wikimedia UK and the University of Edinburgh, the report analyzes the effectiveness of the platform through the lens of 14 case studies at UK universities. The report will be especially useful to educators in higher education, as the majority of the research focused on this sector. The summary above links out to Wikimedia Commons itself, where users can view and download the publication in multiple formats. Here, visitors will find each case study summarized with a course description, learning outcomes, and impact evaluation. Key findings highlight the value of student-led learning and content creation, the importance of global perspectives, and the utility of increased digital literacy. Whether or not readers choose to implement Wikimedia in their classrooms, these key findings serve as a universal grounding for curriculum planning.
