COVID-19 Resources

Over 60% of the world’s student population has been affected by school closures from the pandemic according to UNESCO estimates*

As the nonprofit that operates the world’s largest encyclopedia, we have a commitment to knowledge and believe that learning must continue even if school curriculums do not.

In light of COVID-19, we have made available several free resources for at-home learners using Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects, including lesson plans, “#EduWiki Challenge” exercises, and worksheet templates.
