పరిచయం[మార్చు]

తెలుగు is one of the five focus language areas as part of CIS-A2K’s work ప్రణాళిక during April 2103 – June 2014. Since February 2013 CIS-A2K has been working closely with the తెలుగు వికీపీడియా community in productively channelizing the efforts to ప్రణాళిక and execute collaborative projects on తెలుగు వికీపీడియా and Wikisource and in bringing a good ratio of new editors on board. It has been a huge learning experience for the CIS-A2K program to work with the తెలుగు వికీమీడియ community. Based on the lessons and challenges in implementing the work ప్రణాళిక, it has been decided to further deepen our work in growing the తెలుగు వికీపీడియా project and the associated community. The ప్రణాళిక starts with a critical overview of the CIS-A2K’s work since March 2013 and presents the ప్రణాళిక of activities for the year starting July 2014 to June 2015. In addition to తెలుగు వికీపీడియా, efforts will also be put towards further strengthening తెలుగు Wikisource as part of this ప్రణాళిక.

ఎంత దూరం వచ్చాం - గత ఏడాది విశ్లేషణ[మార్చు]

New editors coming on board; existing editors contributing with rejuvenated enthusiasm; many collaborative projects were started with sizeable creation of new articles; improvement in the quality of existing articles; regular community meet-ups and community celebrations - all of these led to a steady and holistic growth of the తెలుగు వికీపీడియా during the last year’s time. CIS-A2K has played a catalytic role in supporting the community through this journey.

However, this could not have been achieved if the తెలుగు వికీపీడియా community continued to remain disparate and non-cohesive as it had been during the beginning of last year. The village pump was flooded with unproductive conflicts and by January 2013 there was sense of an undercurrent of burnout in the 20 odd senior but tirelessly committed active editors. CIS-A2K’s support to the తెలుగు Wiki Mahotsavam organized in consultation with key తెలుగు వికీపీడియాns Rajasekhar, Rahmanuddin, Malladi Kameswara Rao, Arjunarao C, Sujatha, JVRK Prasad, Bhaskaranaidu, Pranay and Nageshwararao played a key role in resolving many of the unproductive conflicts between members and had also brought in a significant improvement in building on wiki collaborative spirit. It also gave an opportunity for the community and CIS-A2K to begin critical introspection on the growth of తెలుగు వికీపీడియా and to collaboratively ప్రణాళిక and execute projects. This is the biggest factor for the growth of తెలుగు వికీపీడియా in the last year.

CIS-A2K played an instrumental role in creating a monthly meeting space for తెలుగు వికీపీడియాns in Hyderabad and offered its own premises for Bangalore తెలుగు WP meetups. 10 monthly meetups were organized since July 2013 which enabled better collaboration among community members and in executing projects.

The below table gives a quick glimpse of the status of each activity that was part of the last year’s ప్రణాళిక.

Key Activity Sub Activity Stasus Update
Cultivating New Editors Institutional Partnerships: To partner atleast 2-3 higher education institutions in developing 2 thematic projects Created partnerships with English and Foreign Languages University, University of Hyderabad, National Institute of Tourism and Hotel Management and KBN college. CIS-A2K expects to formalize some of these partnerships in the coming months. Though other partnerships were explored success was limited due to the political uncertainty in the state of Andhra Pradesh.
Small City Outreach: Actively spread awareness about తెలుగు వికీపీడియా in small cities across AP where internet penetration is high Except for Vijayawada, Guntur and Tiruvur much could not be done due to the uncertain political context.
User Interest Groups: Target and enroll at least 4 existing collectives or groups and motivate them to contribute to తెలుగు వికీపీడియా Limited success. Brought on board 10 new editors in the field of theater arts. Around 40 biographical articles, 10 theater related articles were created.
Strengthening Existing Community Capacity Building Meetups: To facilitate interactions among community members to create new project ideas, mitigate issues and review periodic growth of తెలుగు వికీపీడియా Highly successful. In addition to the monthly meetups, three large community meetups were organised.
Advanced User Training: 2-3 advanced training programs Successfully organized 2 advanced user trainings. Also CIS-A2K's Train the Trainer program helped three వికీపీడియాns from తెలుగు వికీపీడియా Community to enhance their skills who in turn played a key role in organising Tewiki10
Content Generation తెలుగు వికీపీడియా Village Project: Revive village project and convert 4000 stub articles to start class articles Successfully revived Andhra Pradesh villages project. Three వికీపీడియాns and one Bot account were used to turn around 5000 stub class single lined articles into start class articles.
Making తెలుగు Content in Public Domain Accessible Survey of books has been done against the ప్రణాళిక. Some more work to be done in the coming months.
Content Donation One original research was released under CC license. One renowned author donated a book under CC license. Efforts are on to get more content re-released under CC license.

In addition to this, CIS-A2K has also undertaken the following activities that helped in the growth of తెలుగు వికీపీడియా and the associated community.

  • Organized 15 తెలుగు వికీపీడియా Training Workshops
  • తెలుగు Pramukhulu Project (about 1000 articles were created and quality improved)
  • Lilavati Koothullu project (Project on Indian Women Scientists completed resulting in about 100 articles)
  • Monthly tracking of stub article creation and improvement
  • Pothana తెలుగు Bhagavatam project on తెలుగు Wiki Source
  • As part of Tewiki10 Target 55555 was started that aimed at making total count of articles in తెలుగు వికీపీడియా to 55,555 without compromising on quality of articles.
  • Significant media publicity in electronic and print media.
  • Social media campaign for తెలుగు వికీపీడియా
  • Supported the ప్రణాళికning and కార్యాచరణ of Tewiki10 in consultation with తెలుగు వికీపీడియా Community.
  • Brought తెలుగు వికీపీడియాns actively in touch using social media.
  • Created a page with freely available digital resources, which could be used by తెలుగు వికీపీడియాns.
  • Created తెలుగు typing tutor.
  • Periodic one-on-one interactions with active తెలుగు వికీపీడియాns.

There are two significant challenges and lessons the CIS-A2K program has got from the తెలుగు వికీపీడియా ప్రణాళిక. First, is that institutional partnerships could be used for diverse purposes and not just for growing new editors. When CIS-A2K began implementation of its ప్రణాళిక, it was mostly looking to partner educational institutions to bring on board new editors and to harness the student time in producing knowledge in తెలుగు under the guidance of the faculty. If we strictly assess the results on this parameter, the proposed institutional partnerships were not successful in building new editors and content. After concerted efforts and some failed attempts we realized that not all the institutional partners that we approached were keen to take the తెలుగు వికీపీడియా into the classroom. However, they were open to support the open knowledge movement and CIS-A2K’s efforts. For instance, CIS-A2K initially approached the University of Hyderabad (UoH) to introduce a తెలుగు WEP, which did not materialize. But UoH was glad to offer a central space in the Hyderabad city, at the request of CIS-A2K, to organize various తెలుగు వికీపీడియా community events and meetups, which in retrospect was a significant contribution. This learning will inform our work across other languages too.

The other key activity that did not go as per ప్రణాళికs is the small city outreach program. A key reason for this is the political uncertainty in Andhra Pradesh state for which a resolution is in the offing during the next few months. Another significant challenge is the lack of suitable number of తెలుగు వికీపీడియాns that could do effective outreach. This prompted CIS-A2K to realize the importance of investing in training a set of enthusiastic తెలుగు వికీపీడియాns to do successful Outreach programs. Towards this CIS-A2K has already executed the వికీపీడియా Train the Trainer program as part of which three తెలుగు వికీపీడియాns got trained and are already actively scouting for opportunities to conduct తెలుగు వికీపీడియా training programs. CIS-A2K will continue to invest in building a cadre of community leadership that will have a more long term and sustained impact in growing the తెలుగు వికీపీడియా. We hope to successfully implement the Small city outreach program during the coming year.

ప్రభావం[మార్చు]

In discussing the CIS-A2K program’s impact we have presented below both the tangible and intangible aspects of our efforts in growing the తెలుగు వికీపీడియా. It is important to note that in showing this impact, CIS-A2K is not trying to take direct credit for the growth of తెలుగు వికీపీడియా. The major credit goes to the తెలుగు వికీపీడియా community that has welcomed CIS-A2K, engaged with the ప్రణాళికs, understood the program’s limitations and optimally utilized the movement resources. However, we believe that we have been a significant catalyst in impacting the growth of the తెలుగు వికీపీడియా and to an extent తెలుగు Wikisource.

ప్రత్యక్ష ప్రభావం[మార్చు]

There are two ways CIS-A2K is looking at the tangible growth. First, is to compare the growth against ప్రణాళికned targets that we had set out last year. The other is to do a year-on-year comparison of the growth against some key metrics.

Growth across తెలుగు వికీమీడియ projects

The growth against all the parameters is as per ప్రణాళిక and in some of the targets it has exceeded the dream target. CIS-A2K is reasonably sure that the all the ప్రణాళికned targets will be met by June 2014. It is important to note that the conversion ratio of new editors in to active editors has significantly improved. However, one could be more certain of these editors continue to contribute over a long term.

చార్టులు[మార్చు]
Total No. of Articles on తెలుగు వికీపీడియా comparing progress across 2012 and 2013. We can observe, 3401 articles added n 2013 against 1400 in 2012
Total Users on తెలుగు వికీపీడియా comparing progress across 2012 and 2013. 83 users added in 2013 against 65 in 2012
New Articles created per day on తెలుగు వికీపీడియా comparing progress across 2012 and 2013. There is a sharp visible rise in March 2013 accounting to తెలుగు Wiki Mahotsavam. A similar spike can be seen between August and September when multiple projects like తెలుగు pramukhulu and Lilavathi kuthullu took off. The rapid growth of articles in November and December is due to the Target 55555 initiative, which was enthusiastically participated by many తెలుగు వికీపీడియాns to reach a magic article number of 55555 by the time the community celebrated the Tewiki10 in February, 2014.
Editors Per Month on తెలుగు WP. Its very important to sustain this growth.
Active Editors Per Month on తెలుగు WP. Efforts to increase and sustain the growth would be taken up.

పరోక్ష/అగోచర ప్రభావం[మార్చు]

The various publicity efforts in print (more than 20 news items) and electronic media (6 television and 1 radio programs) during this year had helped to increase the awareness about తెలుగు వికీపీడియా. Some of the active తెలుగు వికీపీడియాns also got showcased, which gave rejuvenated enthusiasm. Further, efforts put in to utilizing social media (especially Facebook) did have a positive impact in bringing some new editors on board of which one has become an active తెలుగు వికీపీడియాn. Social media is also acting as an interactive medium and in building community spirit among the తెలుగు వికీమీడియనులు, which was not present before. There is considerable increase in interactions among తెలుగు వికీమీడియనులు due to various subtle efforts put in by CIS-A2K

One notable impact is the newly generated community spirit on తెలుగు వికీపీడియా. There was such a community present few years ago. Due to many reasons the spirit went down. The efforts of CIS-A2K have resulted in rejuvenating the community spirit, with mostly among the new editors. Some old editors also have become active again.

Also the diversity of the editors on తెలుగు వికీపీడియా has improved considerably during the last year. There is a good mix of active editors across all ages. The gender diversity has also improved. From one woman editor, we now have 5 women editors on తెలుగు వికీపీడియా.

మన తెలుగు వికీ అవసర పునర్విశ్లేషణ[మార్చు]

In last year’s ప్రణాళిక, a detailed analysis of తెలుగు వికీపీడియా, తెలుగు వికీపీడియా Community and their needs & requirements were analysed and a section on needs assessment was part of the ప్రణాళిక. Looking back after one year we can say that many of the needs are met and some are met partially. Some needs are permanent in nature. Based on the experience and interactions with the community (especially during the తెలుగు వికీపీడియా 10th anniversary celebrations), CIS-A2K has revisited the needs of తెలుగు వికీపీడియా and the community.

Need Identified (as on March 2013) Status as on March 2014 Further course of action for (July 2014-June 2015)
To diversify the community through sustained Outreach programmes and double the number of active editors Successfully met Will be a work-in-progress. More efforts will be required in the coming year.
Catalyze a better conversion rate of new editors to active editors. Successfully met. Should be sustained through this year.
Help the community evolve a cohesive policy in effectively discouraging creation of stub articles Partly met through practice than at a policy level. Should be a focus for this year.
Recognition of the efforts put in by committed and veteran తెలుగు వికీపీడియాns Successfully met. Newer models to be explored during this year
Lack of Open-Source culture Not met To be taken up during this year.
Technical Support All requests were met. Ongoing

In addition to the above the following emerge as new needs

  • Sustaining the growth achieved so far.
  • Building content, outreach and technological leadership within the community such that the growth will be long term without building dependency on a catalyst program like CIS-A2K.
  • Improve తెలుగు Wikisource as a content repository for the growth of తెలుగు వికీపీడియా
  • Creating resources that could be used by తెలుగు వికీమీడియనులు in growing the community. Ex : Video tutorials for editing తెలుగు వికీపీడియా, etc.

ప్రణాళికకు తోడ్పడిన వాడుకరుల జాబితా[మార్చు]

ఆంగ్ల అక్షర క్రమమంలో During one of the evenings of the Tewiki 10 event (on February 15, 2014) some of the active తెలుగు వికీపీడియాns converged to introspect the growth of తెలుగు వికీపీడియా in the last year and to discuss the potential projects and activities that could be executed in the coming year. A similar discussion was held on March 8 evening after the Women’s day edit-a-thon in Hyderabad. CIS-A2K is thankful to the below తెలుగు వికీపీడియాns who actively took part in these discussions. These discussions have significantly informed the above ప్రణాళిక.
