About course pages

A course page is the activity hub for an individual class. Course pages serve several purposes:

  • Identifying the instructor responsible for the Wikinews assignment and any other Wikinews contributors who are helping the class
  • Describing the assignment(s) students are attempting, so that other Wikinews contributors can understand the context of their reporting
  • Listing all participating students and the news reports they are working on
  • Providing a discussion and question-and-answer space for students and other Wikinews contributors
  • Keeping track of students' reporting and discussion activity
