Wikipedia India Education Program
The Symbiosis School of Economics has joined several other Pune colleges in participating in the Wikipedia India Education Program, a pilot initiative launched by the Wikimedia Foundation this year. The Wikipedia India Education Program is designed to encourage professors and teachers in Pune to join a growing global community of educators who use Wikipedia as a teaching and learning tool in their classrooms. Universities and colleges chosen for the pilot will have the opportunity to participate in the early stages of an innovative educational model that enables students to contribute to the world's largest online encyclopedia while increasing the breadth and quality of information found in this important global public resource.
