We organized a drive focused on creating reusable digital content to aid students, teachers, and researchers in expanding their online knowledge repositories using Free and Open-Source media. Participants are encouraged to contribute their original research, processes, and insights, ensuring the content is entirely their own. It is imperative to avoid posting information derived from others, including copyrighted materials, logos, images of human beings, and data copied from other websites.

Process

To post content to Wikimedia, we use the Wikimedia Commons app. First, create an account, then upload your original content. Ensure your uploads adhere to guidelines and provide detailed descriptions and appropriate licenses.
