Title Intro to WikiFundi

Presenter/s Florence Devouard, Isla Flood Haddow & Steephane

Abstract The WikiFundi is a software that provides off-line editing environment that mimics the Wikipedia environment. WikiFundi allows for training and contribution when technology, access and electricity outages fail or are not available at all. It enables individuals, groups and communities to learn how to edit Wikipedia, and to work on articles collaboratively. Once completed and connected to the internet, these articles can be uploaded to Wikipedia. The software was designed to support the WikiAfrica movement and Wikimedia volunteers across Africa by Florence Devouard and Isla Haddow-Flood, in collaboration with Wikimedia CH. It will be implemented by Emmanuel Engelhart (Kelson), Anthere, Islahaddow and other community members. The development of the software is supported by the Orange Foundation. The WikiFundi Software and its documentation is licenced under CC-BY-SA 4.0.
