Resumo


Over the latest 12 months, an experiment carried out with three groups of higher education students in Côte d’Ivoire helped us witness some fruitful results among a young audience. “Wikipedia classes”, a twelve-week learning program aiming at teaching students how to use Wikipedia deeply and efficiently, was launched in Abidjan, the economical capital of Côte d’Ivoire. Because working on Wikipedia—the encyclopedia accessed by more than 20 million online users hourly—has its singularity and own requirements such as courtesy, verifiability, notability, learners of “Wikipedia classes” acquired a wide array of capabilities ranging from intangible citizenship values to practical modern skills.
