Wikipedia is the 7th most-visited site on the internet, but a lot of its information about linguistics and underdocumented languages is incomplete, out of date, or could be translated into other languages. Wikipedia is an accessible platform for disseminating information about endangered- and lesser-known languages.
LDTC Wikipedians organize periodic Wikipedia Edit-a-thons, wherein we get together and edit Wikipedia articles together. Anyone is welcome to join; no Wikipedia experience necessary!
In the spring of 2017, concurrent with their first enrollment in a WikiEdu class, Ashleigh Smith and Dannii Yarbrough got together to introduce the LDTC community to Wikipedia editing. Then came another edit-a-thon the following fall, then three more in 2018!
We hope you join us for our next Wikipedia Edit-a-thon!
