Creating and delivering multilingual MOOCs based on the use of the translation and transcription service of UPV
on Tuesday 1 March 2016
from 14:00 – 15:00 CET (Check your time zone)
Providing multilingual access to your MOOCs is a key aspect in the European context, since it lowers the language barrier and significantly increases the number of potential students who can enroll in your courses. However, the cost of manually translating the content of a course into a second language can be too high to be afforded. The EMMA platform provides a service for the automatic transcription and translation of courses that aims at reducing by half the cost of having your course translated into a second language. In this webinar, the transcription and translation services of the EMMA platform are described and first-hand user experience is discussed. Speakers in the webinar will be Jorge Civera, Universitat Politècnica de València, Spain and Ruth Kerr, University of Naples “Federico II”, Italy.
