OFWA holds workshop for Ashesi Wiki Club on Wikimedia Commons
Open Foundation West Africa (OFWA), this week held a workshop with Ashesi Wiki Club on Wikimedia Commons at the Ashesi University in the Eastern Region.
As part of the workshop, students were exposed to the various Creative Common Licenses, how to upload photos and how to use photos on Wikipedia.
The session took an interesting turn when students were taken through details of copyright.
Leading the workshop, Felix Nartey, co-founder of OFWA, on the sidelines introduced the Africa Wikimedia Developers Project (AWDP), which would enable them contribute to the project while providing them with various opportunities in the movement.
Nartey hopes to train the club on how to develop media wiki, the core that supports all wiki projects and further organize hackathons with them.
Wikimedia Commons is an online repository of free-use images, sound, and other media files which is also a project of the Wikimedia Foundation.
