Over the coming month, the OCW Consortium will be sending out several e-mails that need your attention. We are trying to improve our services to members, and we need to hear from you! Please take a few moments to respond to the surveys and inquiries when you receive them. Together we can build a stronger Consortium and a sustainable future for OpenCourseWare around the world. Thank you!
Reaching out to local communities: Translation volunteers wanted
The OpenCourseWare community has always valued the sharing of ideas on an international scale. The Consortium now has over 250 members who speak numerous languages. In order to reach out to more people in local communities, we invite volunteers to translate the OCWC newsletter, webinars, the OCWC Toolkit, and other documentary evidence so that what we do reaches out to more and more people. The October issue of the OCWC Newsletter is offered in six different languages this month. The translations were done by wonderful volunteers from our member institutions. If you are willing to volunteer your time in translating, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. More volunteers in the five languages shown on top of this newsletter are also welcome.
