WOK plugin API enhance Wikipedia with a quiz to every article
Think if Wikipedia had control questions just like any textbook in school has after a chapter end. Well. WOK has a solution.
Wikipedia is used by 600 million people around the globe every month. No doubt Wikipedia is among the best things on the Internet. Wikipedia site is even recently ranked as the most useful site by science (see the article in Washington Post Oct 19, 2016). WOK consider it to be the best thing no doubt even with Facebook and Google Search in mind even when we can have a good discussion if we want to live without any of these. WOK is the cousin of Wikipedia. We call WOK "The Wikipedia 2.0".
The World of Knowledge project WOK ambition is to enhance the Wikipedia experience by adding quiz on top making Wikipedia a game. To improve Wikipedia. To improve something already great to be even better.
WOK has done so by creating the mobile apps WikiMaster (available in Appstore and Google Play), and coming app Wikipedia image app WikiFlip. And we are very proud of the efforts done so far even when we have lots of work to do going ahead.
For millions of people, this apps will enhance the Wikipedia usefulness for years to come. Millions of school students around the globe will benefit from the questions related to Wikipedia articles in the apps from WOKcraft.
Yes. even greater will be when Wikipedia website includes the possibility of using WOK quizzes.
WOK use Wikipedia API to get Wikipedia articles (wikis) in the app WikiMaster (former WOKwiki). WOK has done the reverse: Made an API for Wikipedia to use that automatically connect the WOK database of over 333000 multiple choice questions to Wikipedia.
In the end of the Wikipedia articles we at WOK have envisioned it will look like this:
This link would lead to a WOK quiz related to the article and then lead back to the Wikipedia Site.
Wikipedia->Quiz->Back to Wikipedia. WOK would feel like a part of Wikipedia and just an extension of the Wikipedia experience.
Anyone could check the knowledge stuck in their heads after reading a Wikipedia article.
