Abstract [en]

Wikipedia is often seen as an unusable tool because it only concerns secondary sources. There is also a critical trend in the university that does not want to treat Wikipedia as a possible learning platform. For new students, Wikipedia may be a way of adapting to the academic world. The purpose is to show how to use Wikipedia in language learning, partly to learn to write in another language, partly to learn how to handle sources. The presentation will show concrete examples of how to use Wikipedia as an effective learning platform to contribute to a form of open academy.
