WG2 – R&I on Implicit Crowdsourcing for
Language Learning material production
WG2 aimed at developing or adapting implicit crowdsourcing approaches for producing language learning materials and language-related data. An overview of existing materials and workflows for their creation would be devised. Existing implicit crowdsourcing approaches would also be reviewed and strategies to adapt them or develop new approaches would then be researched. For example, this WG would research ways to generate exercise content from language resources (e.g. lexica) and to crowdsource manual validation of automatically generated new entries (e.g neologisms) by cross-matching the learners’ answers regarding exercise content generated from such new entries.
Leader: Lionel Nicolas (mail)
Vice-Leader: Claudia Borg (mail)
WG2 was also previously led by Rodrigo Agerri as Leader, Simon Krek as vice-Leader and Yaakov HaCohen-Kerner as vice-Leader.
