Video Subtitling Project: Volunteers Needed

29 Sep 2014

We at Complexity Explorer are thrilled by the progress currently being made on subtitling efforts by our dedicated team of volunteers.  We have received a truly overwhelming response to our call for assistance.  Presently, nearly 300 individuals from around the world are helping to create subtitles for our course videos in 34 languages.  We are incredibly grateful to our amazing volunteers for their hard work.  Thank you!  Your efforts are central to allowing non-English speakers around the world to participate in our MOOC program. 

Subtitles for a video can be enabled by starting the video, and clicking on the “cc” icon at the bottom right of the screen.  You can select from the list of available languages, and the subtitles should appear at the bottom of the video. 

This fall we continue to solicit volunteers for subtitling videos.  You can volunteer for as little as a few minutes of video, or as much as a few hours.   Anyone who subtitles 120 minutes or more of video will receive a free Complexity Explorer T-shirt, which we will ship for free anywhere in the world.  The two new courses being offered will provide additional subtitling opportunities.  If you are interested in volunteering, or have previously been wait-listed for subtitling, please send your name, e-mail address, native language and availability to  Even if you are only available for a few minutes your help will still make a great contribution to our goal!
