After the request from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, now we are getting a similar request from @D3r1ck01 in the context of the University of Buea. Better collaboration with universities is an explicit goal of our Onboarding New Developers program, where the Wikipedia Education Program is mentioned explicitly but of course the collaboration should be open to other universities as well. There is quite a bit of information that could be specific to collaboration with universities around Featured Projects that is now spread in tasks, etherpads, emails. Maybe it is time to create a task about having a page under Featured Projects targeted to university teachers and students interested in final career projects?
IMO not under Featured Projects, but at some point, we should recycle this page https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Starter_kit to serve workshop organizers, university teachers, etc.. add information about Featured Projects, include presentation materials, videos, etc. that will help them carry out this work.
I was thinking more of a page explaining what we offer to universities. A page with specific instructions makes sense when a teacher/student already has decided to commit and dive into, but for that they need to understand what we have for them, what we have done with other universities before, and so on.
