Session recording


In this session Wiki Education's Wikidata Program Manager, Will Kent, will spend time exploring ways Wiki Education's Wikidata program has acted as a catalyst to create Wikidata Projects. This interactive session will touch on many themes exploring how to sustain editing on Wikidata, ways to address multiple processes on Wikidata, sharing these results, and encouraging others to get involved. This session will answer the question: What impact will my institution's data have on Wikidata? Anyone is welcome to attend this session, but it may be of particular interest for anyone who is starting a linked data project at their institution, looking to learn more about linked data implementation, or is curious about how Wikidata works.

Please write your questions in the Google doc (bit.ly/LD4Conf2020Wikidatafor the Wikidata track.
