WIKIPEDIA TRAINING AT WELLSPRING UNIVERSITY

On May 31, 2022, Wellspring University hosted a Wikipedia training session in collaboration with the Edo Wikimedia hub.  The training was attended by academic staff, non-academic staff, and students of the University. The event was coordinated by the president of the Edo Wikipedia hub Mr. Timothy Omorodion and the Ag. University Librarian of Wellspring University, Mr. Adedoyin Esan.

Among the topics covered during the training were various Wikimedia projects, the benefits of being an editor on Wikipedia and how to edit on Wikipedia, as well as teaching participants on how to create Wikipedia pages and edit and update old Wikipedia sites.

The programme was quite informative and everyone who attended the training learned a lot. They were also given the opportunity to participate in a one-week edit-a-thon, after which the top five winners received prizes.

Wellspring University remains dedicated to the development of all individuals within the institution and will continue to do so by bringing in new innovations and opportunities.
