Writing Wikipedia Articles: The Basics and Beyond is a free, online course first offered March 2013, as part of the launch of the School of Open. It runs for six weeks; it was offered three times in 2013, and again in 2014, with support from the University of Mississippi. We use the hashtag "#WIKISOO".
