CIS-A2K collaborated with the Oxford College of Engineering, Bommanahalli, Bangalore on April 24, 2015 for introducing Wikimedia projects at their institution. Radhakrishna, a senior Wikimedian from Bangalore provided the crucial introduction and worked closely with the A2K team in conducting all the activities.

Team A2K learnt valuable lessons regarding committing resources and building short term partnerships with higher education institutions. It was noted that the students showed high level of interest but due to the extremely busy academic calendar, activities could not be conducted as per the original plan.

Selected students from Oxford College of Engineering were given hands on training for two weeks (April-May) on various Wikimedia projects and were initiated into Wikisource as an evaluative activity. The diverse group of students presented the A2K team an opportunity to discuss various language projects and prepare a plan for engaging the students after the intensive training comes to an end.
