WikiHow is an online platform providing an extensive database of step-by-step guides on how to complete a wide variety of tasks. The explanations often include illustrations or animations.
WikiHow was launched in 2005 as a for-profit company run for a social mission: It aims to enable anyone in the world to learn how to do anything. Articles are written and edited regularly by volunteers and a small number of employees. Instructions range from generally useful to rather niche and specific. Users can learn how to teach their cat tricks, french kiss, or take a screenshot on a Windows computer (the site’s most viewed article at one point).
