A Wikipedia/Wikimedia/Wiki Academy is a public outreach event in which the participants are introduced to the basics of Wikipedia ( and other WikiProjects) and how to contribute to it.
Wiki Academies may vary in length from hours to days. Wiki Academies are co-ordinated by Wiki Community members, Wikimedia India Chapter members with the help of Language and City Special Interest Groups.
