Hi everyone,

First time post... hope you don't mind!

Have you always wanted to demonstrate your commitment to open data and open
access, but just haven't known how? This fall, seize new opportunities for
your institution by taking one of Wiki Education's online Wikidata courses.

*“Contributing to Wikidata has a ripple effect. *
*It's a great way for institutions to **contribute our resources to a wide
variety of communities *
*and **meet users where they already are.” - past course participant*

*Get started now!

Participants in our online courses meet virtually to learn how to use, as
well as contribute to, the global data repository that is Wikidata
Each course is six weeks and includes one hour synchronous sessions with
peers, as well as access to hands-on support and technical training from
Wikidata experts.

*Course fee: $800 - **early bird and group discounts available*

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reply to this email and
I'll get back to you.
