Getting Started & Common Difficulties
It can be scary to think about making something you created public by posting it to Wikipedia, but be confident! You have some of the best resources and knowledge at your disposal as a student. It is important to recognize the value of not simply digesting academic material but infusing your knowledge into the public sphere. Set your expectations low at first, start with small edits on a topic you’ve already researched and keep your WikiEd curated resources handy. Edits can be anything from adding a citation to a sentence or adjusting grammar. Be curious, search for prominent figures, concepts, or topics that interest you and sift through the content to see if there’s anything you can contribute. You can check out other student-made pages and courses taught through the WikiEducation Dashboard tool by heading to the ‘explore’ page as inspiration as well.
