Dear Mikhail,
Would you like to be a bit more specific?

   - Are you a Wikimedian, or you are a teacher?
   - If you're the teacher, do you have any personal experience with wiki
      projects? Do you know Wikimedians who are willing to help you in this?
      - If you're a Wikimedian, do you know of any teachers who are willing
      to "risk" with letting Wikipedia into their classroom?
   - Which specialty and year are the students? How many are the students
   in the course?
   - What sort of assignments in Wikipedia, or related project, would the
   teacher and students prefer?
   - What is the technological readiness and available equipment of the
   - How long engagement would you like to build? Just one semester or a
   long-term cross-discipline relation?
   - What workload in terms of hours/days/weeks is envisaged?
   - What would be the motivation of the students to contribute to
   Wikipedia? What would be the motivation of the teacher to participate?
   - Is the mark going to serve as motivational factor? What part of the
   final mark will the wiki assignment bring to the students -- full, partial,
   none? Is it going to be obligatory for all students, for some of the
   students, or completely voluntary?
   - Any specific formal requirements / university regulations that need to
   be taken into consideration?
   - Is there willingness from the Wikipedian/Wikimedian community to
   facilitate the project: to help and advise newbie editors, etc?

These are just the initial questions that need to be answered to, before we
can offer you some more concrete ideas and solutions.
