This vision was created by the Wikimedia Foundation’s Multimedia team, with guidance from community members, to show one possible scenario of how our tools could engage Wikipedia users through multimedia by 2016 −- and support productive collaborations in the process.
This possible scenario is intended for discussion purposes, to help us visualize how we could improve our user experience over the next three years. This particular exploration proposes ways to integrate Wikipedia more closely with Wikimedia Commons, so that users could contribute more easily to our free media repository, wherever they are.
