ଗତବର୍ଷର ଯୋଜନାର ପ୍ରତିଫଳନ[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

Key Activity Sub Activity Status update
WikiProjects for content growth WikiProject Villages and towns of Odisha:
Creating articles about villages and towns of Odisha
About 5 Wikipedians contributed towards creating more than 200 articles. Helped to get a few new editors to Odia Wikipedia. Momentum could not be sustained for a long run.
Enhancement of 100 core articles by existing community. Because of the overload of work on a small community this project could not be continued. One learning from this failure was that if a couple of experienced editors might have been selected as a leaders; they could have kept the enthusiasm high and motivated community members to participate actively.
Lilvati’s daughters Project:

Creation of articles on women scientists

23 articles created on Odia Wikipedia because of significant contribution by one experienced editor, Dr. Subas Chandra Rout. Other editors also pitched in.
Mass awareness events Odia Wikipedia 10: Odia Wikipedia’s 10th anniversary was organized at KISS and IIMC. This event was primarily organized by active editors and a few newly recruited editors. Received good media coverage resulting in at least 80 new accounts being created and also brought in a few active editors.[୨]
Community storytelling and media coverage Many experienced and new Wikipedians were interviewed as part of the WikipediansSpeak project. Helped in increasing the visibility of the Odia Wikimedia community. News coverage and interviews of editors have been useful to spread awareness about Odia Wikipedia, the opportunities and challenges attached to the projects. These video interviews also helped gain higher visibility for Odia Wikipedians.
There were more than 15 news coverage in print and web media.
Cultivating new editors Odia Wikipedia Education Program at Indian Institute of Mass Communication (IIMC) 19 students participated in this program. Some of them have been active even after the formal program concluded (over the last 5-6 months). However it has been a challenge to achieve high retention rate.[୩]

କାର୍ଯ୍ୟକ୍ରମର ପ୍ରଭାବ[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

CIS-A2K's initiatives have resulted in growth of Odia community and projects. This section should be looked as the impact of CIS-A2K's efforts that has helped catalyze the growth of content, editors and help build partnerships to strengthen Odia community. This in no way takes away the credit from the Odia community and all it's hard work without whom these impacts would not have been achieved. The major credit goes to the Odia Wikipedia community that has welcomed CIS-A2K, engaged with the plans, understood the program’s limitations and optimally utilized movement resources.

  • Total number of articles crossed the dream target that was set up last year. However, total number of editors and total number of outreach events are closer to the dream target.
  • Revisiting “WikiProject villages and towns of Odisha”: This project concentrated on creating articles on villages and towns of Odisha and has brought about 200 new articles and active involvement from more than 5 editors.
  • Lilavati’s daughters edit-a-thon project: Project on Indian scientists got major contribution from one Wikipedian and support from several other Wikipedians that yielded over 23 articles.
  • There were about 25 press coverages in print, web and television media including special features in two popular newspapers: The Sambad and The Samaja. These have led to 80 new accounts being created creating and contributions from 3-4 new editors. Number of new editors have grown from 1 to 9 during the months of November 2013 to January 2014.
Growth trends of active editors 28 Jan - 11 February 2014. The hikes marked show the impact of media coverage.
Source: Wikipedia Interactive Statistics
  • There is a hike in the growth of active editors in July 2013 and this corresponds with the time when first phase of the workshops at IIMC was rolled out. Similarly, there is another hike in November 2013 which corresponds to the time when the education program and outreach was rolled out at IIMC and KISS.
  • During the month of July and November 2013 there is a hike of new editors. However, retention rate and sustainability of editors is still low. On an average, in a classroom of 20 students; only 2-3 have continued their contributions post the formal program concluded.
  • Returning Wikipedians: 2-3 inactive Wikipedians started contributing and taking part in activities initiated by CIS-A2K.
  • The number of readers have grown from 309,974 to 472,417 (65 % growth) during April 2013 - January 2014; there were majority of outreach activities and media coverages during the same time frame.

ଅପରିମିତ ପ୍ରଭାବ[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

  • Wiki meetups have become more frequent and goal oriented.
  • WikiProjects were planned during meetups and community members collaboratively implemented them by distributing tasks.
  • Individual Wikimedians started taking responsibilities for executing on-wiki activities.
  • Follow up sessions have become a must for all outreach events with a target of making every editor edit at least five times.
  • Two experienced editors were trained over three days during the Train-the-Train program organized by CIS-A2K. These editors were trained on different aspects such as Open Knowledge, Social media and Public speaking; and they have now started taking initiatives to train more Wikimedians.
  • Two Wikimedians were mentored during the Telugu Dasabdi celebration (Telugu Wikipedia’s 10 year celebration) to plan and implement projects. This has helped them organize the Odisha Day celebration.
  • Odia Wikipedia Education program at IIMC helped Odia Wikimedia community to get more on-ground experience and high level of confidence to organize mass outreach events.
  • Built new partnership with KISS for building community to contribute to Odia WikiSource, Odia Wikipedia and Santali WikiSource. Students from KIIT University have started contributing to Indian language Wikipedias.
  • CIS-A2K led storytelling initiatives that introduced local Odia community not only to other Indian language Wikimedia communities but also to the global community. These video interviews (7 interviews of Wikipedians, academicians, media personalities and policy makers) have helped give high visibility to Odia editors.

ଆବଶ୍ୟକ‌ତାର ପ୍ରତିଫଳନ[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

  • Majority of the Odia Wikipedia editors are currently in the age group of 15-30. To help diversify; we need more focussed outreach for professional and elderly.
  • More coverage is needed in magazines, newspapers op-eds, children's magazines and other publications, to help reach the masses.
  • Majority of professionals in the printing and publishing industry are familiar with ISCII based input methods, primarily typing with a generic layout called “Modular”. To bring these people on Wikimedia platform, there is a need to include Modular layout in MediaWiki's Universal Language System (ULS); and follow it up by conducting focussed outreach sessions for these professionals.
  • Almost all newspapers, magazines and other publications use various ISCII standards (Non Unicode) for their desktop publishing. Some have archives that could be accessed. Only a handful of them have web versions that are available in Unicode. There is a need to create more awareness and share advantages of releasing these in Creative Commons license.
  • Many of the scanned books by organizations like Srujanika do not have public access. There is a need for creating digital public libraries with open access.
  • Until now most community activities have been focussed on growing content. There is need to implement community programs to increase editor base.
  • Most active community members are based primarily in Bhubaneswar and Nalconagar with a few in Cuttack. There is a need for expansion of the community in other cities in Odisha and the Odia diaspora else where in India.
  • There is a need for self-learn video tutorials on how to edit Odia Wikipedia for new editors.

କାର୍ଯ୍ୟକାରୀ ହେବାକୁ ଥିବା ଯୋଜନା[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

ନୂତନ ଉଇକିଆଳି ନିମନ୍ତେ ଯୋଜନା[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

  • Long term outreach programs - spanning over 2-3 months have given more sustainability in new editor activity in the past. Similar programs will be executed in the coming year.
  • Print and social media coverages - have led to an increase in new account creation and editors. CIS-A2K will aim at increasing its media coverage in 2014-15.
  • Institutional partnerships (Higher Education)- Based on the previous year’s experience of approaching higher education institutions a list is put together below this section. CIS-A2K will focus its energies in building institutional partnerships with these institutions in developing thematic projects.
  • Strengthening ties with existing partners - Though with the existing partner organizations the major focus is around content, bringing new Wikipedians is the other goal to achieve. Wikipedia Education Program in the institutions helps creating and fostering an active new editor community. Following are the existing institutional partners and plans for the new editor building:

ଆନୁଷ୍ଠାନିକ ସହବନ୍ଧନ[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

Indian Institute of Mass Communications (IIMC), Dhenkanal

CIS-A2K will execute an Odia Wikipedia Education Program at IIMC. However, based on the learnings from last two programs, CIS-A2K will aim to start the program as soon as the new batch commences.

  • Rolling out the third Odia Wikipedia Education Program (OEP) for a batch of 20 Odia journalism students.
  • Training new editors with the help of current editors to organise editing workshops.
  • 20 new editors
  • Minimum 4-5 active editors who continue their editing activity post the program.
  • Minimum 20 good quality articles.
Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences (KISS), Bhubaneswar

Integrating Odia Wikipedia into the curriculum of KISS such that 30 master students work towards creating articles on tribal languages, culture, heritage and locations of Eastern India.

  • Forming an OR WP core group at KISS.
  • Training the WP Core group.
  • Organize training workshops.
  • CIS-A2K personnel will be located at KISS and KIIT for a period of 3 months to do intensive training programs and offer support.
  • Total outreach for about 100 students. Of this 30 will be converted into active contributors.
  • Approximately 200 new articles being created.

Other higher educational institutions:

Institution Status

Utkal University, Bhubaneswar Plans for Wikipedia Education Program for Odia masters students being discussed with professors
Fakir Mohan University Plans for Wikipedia Education Program for Odia masters students being discussed with professors

To partner with the above institutions in developing thematic projects and creating a network of academicians that will actively use Odia Wikipedia as part of their pedagogy. To reach out to 2 other higher education institutions to conduct Odia Wikipedia Workshops mainly with an intention to create awareness and explore possibilities for long-term partnerships.

  1. Come up with a calendar of events/schedule for each of the institution in consultation with the coordinating faculty.
  2. Enter into formal agreements with institutions wherever possible. Introduce and involve key Odia Wikipedians from the initial conversations.
  3. In collaboration with key Odia Wikipedians; design and roll-out Workshops.
  4. Continuous mentoring, monitoring and evaluation of new editors cultivated under the project.
  5. Use Odia Wikipedia Facebook group for higher visibility of these projects.
  6. Facilitate need-based technical and online support
  7. Motivating students and faculty to author blogs.
  8. Constant liaison with the coordinating faculty of department.
  9. Quarterly review of the project progress; in consultation with the Odia community.

  4. Could become a model to attract the attention of bodies like UGC/Universities/NAAC in actively considering the use of Wikipedia as a pedagogic tool in quality higher education in Indian languages.

New editors often do not start asking questions on-wiki talk pages or do not take part in any IRC or other discussions. It is crucial for the existing community to extend support to new editors and be available on various platforms like social media, chat; and if required over phone.

  • Have a set of standard FAQ that could be used for social media platforms.
  • Links to specific resources when new editors ask question.
  • Taking social media questions gradually onto Chatasabha and talk pages by guiding new editors.
  • Have experienced editors as mentors on social media platforms.
  • Rewarding the mentors to keep their motivation level high.
  • Pilot a facebook campaign of tagging members of the Odia Wikipedia facebook group, initiate conversation and invite to edit Wikipedia article.
  • Provide support to all new editors that come from outreach efforts in IIMC (About 20).
  • Mentor 40-50 % of the existing members of the Facebook group who are otherwise not editors.
Diversity in community

Most of the existing editors are primarily youngsters. There are some focused programs being planned to diversify the community and have more school kids, elderly people and women in the community.

  • Celebrating Children's day in some schools where Community can travel easily and educate students about Wikipedia editing and conducting workshops.
  • Celebrating the month of march and WikiWomen's month with activities like article writing competitions in the partner organizations.

  • Series of editing tutorials; like already done in Hindi and Kannada.
  • Involve the community in script and designing of the tutorials.
  • Providing tutorial DVDs for public distribution.
  • Production of at least 10 video tutorials.

Digitization project at the Harekrushna Mahtab State Library, Bhubaneswar by Department of Culture, Odisha

Harekrushna Mahtab State Library has over 180,00,000 books out of which many are out of copyright. The library in collaboration with the National Informatics Center (NIC) is trying to digitize some of the books, creating an in-campus digital library with the catalogue of the books available in the library and create an internet browsing center that will allow visitors to access information online by paying a nominal fee. [୪] CIS-A2K had a discussion with the library to understand the kind of work that is in progress for the digitization project. Currently some of the library staff are involved to set the digital scanner and others technical infrastructure for this project. The library has informally agreed to allow a group of people to take part in the digitization process.

  3. Learning from two of the education programs:
    Since 2012, two Odia Wikipedia Education Programs have been included as one of the key student activities by Indian Institute of Mass Communication (IIMC), Dhenkanal. During these programs students have taken part in learning Wikipedia editing and have contributed to diverse topics. First Odia Wikipedia Education Program was conducted for a batch of 16 Odia journalism students to teach them how to contribute to Wikipedia. However, this did not yield much success in terms of editor retention and growth in content. This program was conducted during November 2012 – January 2013 which overlapped the annual examination. Outreach sessions were shorter and could not create much impact in the long gap of one/two months. Most of the students did not contribute much and stopped contributing after the closure program. Based on the learning from the first education program the second one was re-structured focussing on having more of student's time, keeping day long sessions for better engagement, using social media for keeping regular touch with the new editors post workshop, fostering editors on-wiki using Chatasabha (Odia Wikipedia's help desk). Odia Wikimedia community also celebrated the 10th anniversary in the campus to create a Wiki-vibe. Though the number of articles created are not significantly high there is some level of retention in the second phase in both editor and content growth. Because of other campus activities the second session was delayed for a month that created a long gap and the editors did not contribute during that time. There was a not a strong support system in place during the first session which also resulted in building poor existing-new editor relation. In a one year program at IIMC there is always a chance of low output when a strong engagement system is in place.
