How can we build an online learning platform that can serve an entire movement?

The Community Development team of the Wikimedia Foundation experimented with hosting two interactive online courses in early 2021 – one about Anti-harassment Techniques and the other about Partnership Building – and has some thoughts to share based on those experiences.

No less importantly, the team wants plenty of input from diverse perspectives on some major open questions, regarding key concerns about openness and scale, inclusivity and trust, safety and combating harassment, multilingualism and up-to-dateness, and more. Please join us! We will briefly present pilot results, our conclusions, and our questions, but most of the time will be discussion.

Session Outcomes

[edit | edit source]
  1. Lessons from WMF's pilot year of courses using Moodle.
  2. An understanding of the complex questions arising from opening a traditional learning management system to everyone.
  3. Ideas and further concerns brought up in roundtable.

I'm planning to attend this session live!
