- Volunteer to Subtitle Videos
Why Volunteer? Many of our course participants have volunteered to subtitle our course videos, and we are always looking for additional volunteers. It is our hope that together we will eventually be able to create full sets of language subtitles for all of our courses. Doing so will make our MOOC content even more available to individuals around the world who do not speak English.
Subtitling and Free T-shirt Offer: You can volunteer for as little as much as you like. We are offering a free Complexity Explorer t-shirt, including free shipping anywhere in the world, to any volunteer that subtitles 120 minutes or more. We review your total minutes of subtitling once a month and will contact you once you go over 120 minutes to ask you for your t-shirt size and color preference. If you are not interested in a t-shirt, you can choose to accept a voucher towards a future paid course session on Complexity Explorer.
