Technological & Process Problems/Wishlist[edit | edit source]

WikiEdu dashboard is unavailable outside of N.America, and the Foundation Outreach one doesn't create an Education Project Page or have other similar functionalities.

  • "students" not "editors"
  • "Course Program" to be selectable without being an admin

Wikidata

Better messaging to communicate to cynics about how Wikidata identifies problems and protects itself from vandalism.

Uploading datasets workflows explained

Using Mix & Match is not *technically* necessary, but because it acts as a record of what data has been added, it is important to use to act as a way of centrally documenting the data you are adding/matching.

Commons

Better metrics for image re-use.

Wikisource

Flow process for Wikisource needed.
