Demonstration and discussion – Being multilingual with EMMA: how the EMMA translation and transcription works

  1. To motivate the need for transcriptions and translations in the context of MOOCs.
  2. To motivate the need for automatic transcriptions and translations to reduce user review effort – automatic transcriptions and translations are not perfect, but better than generating them from scratch.
  3. To show how automatic transcription and translation systems are built? Just to convey the necessity of adapting these systems to the content to be transcribed and translated.
  4. To provide a hands-on step-by-step tutorial on the transcription and translation platform (TTP) simulating the transcription and translation of a course. This tutorial will be divided into two parts corresponding to the two workflows on TTP (transcription and translation of video content and translation of text content). See workflows at the end of this e-mail.

Presentation and discussion – Choosing to implement video in your MOOC: what are the options?
