We have GREAT wiki-project in Chernihiv (Ukraine)- WikiStudia. It's one of the biggest Educational Wiki-project in the World. Three parallel currents of students studied how to create the articles, how to use Wiki-markup and other wiki-wisdom. They wrote about 130 articles during 3 months of educational classes and 33 after that during the wiki-contest. They can add pictures, categories and infoboxes. And they do it! BUT. Only for period of learning in WikiStudia! After ending of course and contest they stopped edit Wiki. Almost everybody! ;-(

The question is HOW to attract students to write articles after ending of program?
