Hello all,

The Community Development
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Community_Development> team at the
Wikimedia Foundation is launching the WikiLearn (Online Learning Pilot)
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Community_Development/WikiLearn>, a
capacity-building project. This project will deliver two courses over an
8-week period that will begin on February 1, 2021. Courses are free to take
part in and will be hosted on Moodle <https://moodle.com/>. During this
pilot project, each course will be taught, and assignments are to be
prepared, in English. At the end of the pilot, we will be making course
materials available for anyone interested in self-study, and for

The two courses we will be launching on February 1, 2021, are:


   Identifying and Addressing Harassment
   This course will focus on developing skills that will help volunteers
   respond to on- and off-wiki harassment.

      This course will combine scheduled sessions and independent study.
      The weekly commitment of this course is 2-3 hours per week.

      Target Audience: Volunteers with administrator or other advanced user


   Partnership Building:
   intensive course will provide an in-depth curriculum on how to develop
   meaningful programmatic and organizational partnerships within the movement
   and with external partners.

      This course will consist of scheduled sessions and individual
      assignments with a weekly total commitment of up to 6 hours.

      Target Audience: Volunteers with intermediate-level experience
      contributing to Wikimedia projects and beginner-level experience with
      building partners with Non-Wikimedia groups and organizations.

To ensure our small team can provide each learner individual support, we
are limiting each course in this pilot to 40 participants. We ask that all
interested applicants commit to attending weekly for the full course.

All efforts will be made to ensure that scheduled sessions are time-zone
friendly to the greatest number of enrolled participants. However, with the
wide distribution of volunteers, that may not always be possible.

Key Dates:


   Applications open Today (December 15, 2020) and will close on January
   14, 2021.

   Successful applicants will be notified on January 18, 2021.

   The first session for each course will be held on February 1, 2021.
