Virtual Summer Trainees
Students often find it difficult to get placements for training (short/long/summer training), which is mandatory requirement for getting a degree. The Indipedia provide opportunity for students to take small projects related to information collection and compilation. We may issue a certificate for students who contribute significantly to Indipedia (at least 10 important articles).
While on one hand we bewail the "lack of manpower", it is an unpalatable fact that many educated youngsters do not have appropriate jobs. There is obviously a gap between what the employers require and the level of knowledge or expertise the youth have. Unemployed youths who need experience certificate are requested to contribute generously to Indipedia. We will issue a certificate for those who contribute significantly to Indipedia (at least 10 important articles).
We are working on concept of virtual job where employee can contribute from their home (for example women’s). We will prefer to hire those who have contributed maximum information to Indipedia.
All faculty members are requested to encourage students to contribute to Indipedia. You may give assignment to students for contributing articles to Indipedia.
Indipedia uses popular software MediaWiki which maintain history of articles added/edited by users. It means all your contribution will be recorded so that you may get full credit of your contribution.
