    The SDG Academy has 35 Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) available on edX.org and in the SDG Academy Library. All courses are available in English, but we are looking to translate course content

    Overview of the Project Opportunity

    The SDG Academy has 35 Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) available on edX.org and in the SDG Academy Library. All courses are available in English, but we are looking to translate course content

    The Problem this Project Addresses

    The SDG Academy has high-quality educational resources. All course content is mapped across industry-subjects and SDG-content. While the implications of the courses are global, the language accessibility remains rather English-centric. We welcome volunteer translators to help us scale up the translation efforts globally! No language or dialect is too small, we want to make sure the courses can reach their maximum audience levels!

    Region or Country Benefited

    Global virtual engagement Office is based in New York, NY. Supervisor is based in Cleveland, OH.
