Background: As part of the 2018 Annual Plan work for the foundation, the Editing team is looking at ways to improve the mobile editing experience on the web. In order to make sure that we are taking into account best practices, we need to research common patterns for UI.

Research goals:

  • Explore the patterns on the existing interface for Wikipedia on mobile web
  • Explore what kinds of UI patterns other editing tools are using
