Student contribution

Whereas many teachers and professors have frowned on their students’ use of Wikipedia in assignments, others have embraced it as an essential learning platform for the 21st century that gives students the opportunity to learn actively by contributing to the creation of articles based on objective knowledge. Already in August 2006 over 20 different universities was listed on the School and university project Wikipedia page (Konieczny, 2007[1]). Various forms Wikipedia assignments have been described: creating a new article, translating, copy editing, reviewing or adding references to an existing one (Konieczny, 2007[1]; Witzleb, 2009[2]) as well as monitoring how their own contribution was changed by other Wikipedia editors (Chandler, 2010[3]). These assignments been reported for various domains: history (Pollard, 2008[4]; Chandler, 2010[3]), law (Witzleb, 2009[2]) and chemistry (Moy, 2010[5]).
