Abstract[edit source]

It is undeniable that nowadays visual and bite-sized content is something that most internet users are very interested in, which also has an impact on users in accessing Wikimedia projects. Therefore, the Inuka team from Wikimedia Foundation created a project that combine elements of knowledge (contributing to Wikipedia and/or Wikimedia Commons) and bite-sized content (visual content that is easily digested by millennial and beyond) under the name \Wikistories\. Wikistories is an upcoming tool that aims to allow contributors to easily create visually appealing bite-sized content that helps to engage new readers as well as creators.

Learning Outcomes[edit source]
