WG1 – R&I on Explicit Crowdsourcing for
Language Learning material production
WG1 aims at developing or adapting explicit crowdsourcing approaches for producing language learning materials. For example, WG1 will research the most effective ways to collaboratively devise lesson content (e.g. grammar) and to assess how effective it is by observing how different samples of users confronted with the created content perform subsequently. An overview of existing materials and workflows for their production will be created and existing explicit crowdsourcing approaches will be reviewed. Then, strategies to adapt and integrate such approaches will be researched.
Leader: Iztok Kosem (mail)
Vice-Leaders: Johannes Graën (mail) and Elena Volodina (mail)
WG1 was also previously led by Elena Volodina as Leader and Iztok Kosem as vice-Leader.
