Tutorials[edit]

You have 10 minutes to use whatever Wikimedia Commons tutorials that you think may be helpful in aiding you in searching for images and editing this site to use them. May we suggest the following as starting points:

  1. Welcome page
  2. Basic instructions for searching and embedding files

Note: you do not have to take all 10 minutes if you do not wish to do so.

Tasks[edit]

  1. You are trying to find a photograph of a sailboat to illustrate the Wikipedia article “sailboat.” Any photograph of a sailboat will do, as long as it is clear to another person that the photograph is depicting a sailboat. Once you have located the image of your choosing, edit this article mock-up to display it. You have 5 minutes to complete this task.
  2. You are searching for three photographs of muscle cars to illustrate the Wikipedia article “muscle car.” You may use any three photographs you wish, but one should correspond to each of the “Big Three” American automakers (feel free to use Wikipedia or another online source to determine which cars are made by which automakers, if you need to). Once you have located the three images, edit this article mock-up to display them. You have 10 minutes to complete this task.
  3. You are searching for a video of a Space Shuttle launch to illustrate the Wikipedia article “Space Shuttle.” You may use any footage from any mission, but it must be a video and it must depict a launch. Once you have located a video, edit this article mock-up to embed it. After doing this, change the image caption to something meaningful relating to your video and then successfully play the video while it is embedded in the article mock-up (ie, without going to the video's dedicated page). You have 10 minutes to complete this task.
