TL;DR: The Learning and Evaluation team at Wikimedia Foundation has
released the first Programs Reports for Wiki Loves Monuments  and
Other Photo Events . Learn more about how these programs deliver
against the set goals and comment on what next steps should be! Join the
event on Wed May 6 **
The Learning and Evaluation team at Wikimedia Foundation is happy to
launch the first two Wikimedia programs reports 2015: Wiki Loves
Monuments and Other Photo Events . As many of you know, the
reports are the result of a collaborative effort that brings together
program leaders across the movement and the L&E team, to better
understand the impact Wikimedia programs have online and offline.
Highlights of the first reports include that media uploaded to Wikimedia
Commons as part of the Wiki Loves Monuments and other photo events (from
September 2013 to September 2014) represent 14% of the media uploaded to
Commonsand media uploaded are used in articles at five times the rate
ofother media uploaded during the same time period.Read the reports to
understand how many new users are introduced to wiki projects through
these programs, to learn about user retention, and to see how effective
photo events are at expanding and improving contenton Wikimedia
projects. Unlike the beta reports, these new deliveries includes a new
section: «How this info can apply to program planning», in the section
«Key Findings», to help program leaders make the most of these reports.
In addition to these two reports, we've published an overview report on
the state of program evaluation and reporting. Specifically, the section
Evaluation Initiativewill give readers a snapshot on the state of
learning and evaluation in the movement.
We have come a long way, and we want to thank everyone who has been
involved in different parts of this initiative and especially those who
shared data with us! We still have a lot of work to approach together.We
need program leaders ideas and views to explore possible next steps.Some
potential areas for further investigation of Other Photo Events and Wiki
Loves Monuments are:
Do different types of photo events attract different types of users?
How can we apply the successes of low-cost, low-scale events to
Join the conversation on the Talk Page of both reports. Additionally, we
will host an event to present the reports and discuss them on
*Wednesday, May 6, at 1500 UTC.* We have heard back from some program
leaders that will not be able to make it, but as many of you know, it is
hard to find a time that works across the movement. We are unable to
move this virtual event, but*it will be recorded and available for the
public and commenting afterwards. *Join the event here:
