- Lightning talk - 10 mins
Description[edit | edit source]
This session will address to all the resources that can be useful for community members in various projects. Wikimedia Serbia has devoted its time to create video tutorials about editing Wikipedia in order to reach out to those who had interest, but felt insecure to edit because they didn’t know the rules. Beside technical instructions, volunteers can benefit by learning soft skills in terms of cooperation with institutions. That’s why we made instructions for Wiki ambassadors and Wikipedians in Residence. Several Wikipedians created new communication channel - Discord server which proved to be very active and useful for quick questions and answers. All of these improved communication and the best thing is - everyon e can do it!
