Wikimedia training at Seedac College of Arts and Science

We are excited to announce that we recently held a successful Wikipedia editing training workshop for graduate students at Seedac College of Arts and Science, Sreekrishnapuram, Palakkad,Kerala. The session was inaugurated by the college director, Mr. Shabeer, and was attended by 20 enthusiastic students. The workshop provided valuable hands-on experience for the participants, who learned how to edit and create Wikipedia articles. We believe that empowering students with the skills to contribute to the world's largest online encyclopedia is an important step in fostering digital literacy and promoting knowledge sharing. We are grateful to all the participants and the college leadership for their support of this important initiative.
