Abstract[edit source]

Wikimedia Summit 2019 - Portrait Galder Gonzalez.jpg

Ikusgela is a project specialized in pedagogical videos. Its aim is to increase the presence of the Basque language on the web and to complete the scope of Basque Wikipedia. With a fresh tone that appeals to both students and those interested in the topics being worked on, it will use a language and resources adapted to the new narratives. All the videos, moreover, have been completed with free content, mostly from Wikimedia Commons, and the material created will also be free, as a sign of a way of acting in the network.

Learning Outcomes[edit source]

Multimedia is our friend, we can add videos to make audience better understand the topic.
Remixing from Commons is possible, but painful. All the videos are made up from free images.
Students and young audiences are searching videos, instead of texts.
