- Wikipedia: Wikidata
This page can be developed into a more complete learning resource about Wikidata, where one can learn about properties, how they are used, methods of finding consensus between a few or more users. As Wikidata can often have data that only a few "experts" understand this might be a challenging project.
Wikidata is a collaboratively edited knowledge base operated by the Wikimedia Foundation. It is intended to provide a common source of certain data types (for example, birth dates) which can be used by Wikimedia projects such as Wikipedia. For example in wikidata you can find the work of Vincent van Gogh (Q5582).
Reasons[edit | edit source]
The possibilities for wikidata are many. Practically anything that can be made into lists, tables and databases, such as:
- A periodical table of elements
- A table of physical constants
- A table of the world events
- A table of Indigenous public art
It is important to develop datasets that can be used in multiple languages and across many different project spaces (such as the range of Wikimedia projects). A reasonable solution is to make one common data project that has the discipline of open format standards and reuse and the potential for a large and popular user base to assist with contributions and management - much like what Commons: is for images and media.

How to use Wikidata items - Studies on current/recent data[edit | edit source]
The goal for this section is to analyze how various data is entered into Wikidata, to find patterns, which might ease finding consensus in how to consistently make good edits using items and properties
Guidelines for entering Wikiversity "objects" into Wikidata[edit | edit source]
These are guidelines for entering Wikiversity "objects" into Wikidata so that editors of Wikiversity can find common ground on what is the "proper" or "best practice" ways to enter information into Wikidata for learning resources, scholarly articles etc. that are found on Wikiversity.
Examples are going to help people edit as they can learn from specific examples(where it is suggested that extra work is done so that editors see the consensus implemented into edits so they know how to edit)
Entering Wikiversity project pages with examples[edit | edit source]
List of examples which you can learn from:
- most Wikiversity pages" of Open interviews (Q105145103) -
- for Wikiversity projects" of Mazama Newt Conservation (Q105269498) - This specific example covers a project that may be restricted to students and faculty of certain institutions, with public participation being limited.
- for Wikiversity learning resources" of Compiling the Linux kernel (Q105629323)
Examining existing editing practices[edit | edit source]
This section is for examining editing practices on Wikidata that represent Wikiversity(multilingual) pages on Wikidata to research if there is a possible consensus in current editing and if it can help this project.
- most Wikiversity pages:
- 2021-01-31: 6 results
- 2021-02-09: 22 results
- for Wikiversity projects:
- 2021-02-03: 2 results
- for Wikiversity learning resources:
- 2021-02-22: 1 result
