Wikidata training @ Wikimedia UK

September 30, 2013 1 By addshore

I recently led an event at Wikimedia UK on 28 September 2013 entitled Wikidata Training as part of the Wikidata development team.

The event page on the Wikimedia UK wiki can be found at

I want to share the LONG presentation that I gave on that day using Prezi.

You can find it below, sorry if it drags on but it gets lots across.

The session itself was in depth and took around 5 hours covering topics from basic terms, basic use, community processes, current features, and future plans.

Thanks to Wikimedia UK for making it possible and also for providing refreshments.

Feedback from the event can be found on the Wikimedia UK wiki. The feedback includes the rather awesome thought cloud included below!

All good thoughts as far as I can tell!
