Wikipedia

Wikipedia is the 5th most visited website in the whole web. In fact, it is almost the first source of knowledge in the world nowadays. Unfortunately, the statistics shows a lack of articles in the Arabic language compared to other languages with much smaller speakers. King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology contacted us to produce videos that would encourage the Arabic people to contribute in Wikipedia.

The idea was to create 3 videos, the first one is an introduction to Wikipedia encouraging people to contribute. The other two are to explain how to add and edit a Wikipedia article. We love to contribute in such projects with an added value to education and society. It was very rewarding to see Queen Rania and Jimmy Wales (Wikipedia founder) talk about the video and share it in Twitter.
