The ccNSO is now looking for for a limited number of volunteers who will review and suggest improvements for the current ccNSO Onboarding Course on ICANN Learn.
The call for volunteers for the course revision team opens Wednesday, 1 September 2021 (23:59 UTC) and closes Wednesday, 15 September 2021 (23:59 UTC).
What is this about?
The ccNSO Onboarding Course (ICANN Learn identifier 150.1) was created a few years ago, as part of the efforts by the ccNSO to inform the broader community about its role in supporting ccTLDs and its place within the ICANN ecosystem. The course is available on ICANN Learn, an online learning platform requested by and built for the global ICANN community. Courses cover the basics of what ICANN and the various Supporting Organisations and Advisory Committees do, how to get involved, and more. For more information visit http://learn.icann.org
The ccNSO Outreach and Involvement Standing Committee (OISC) recently suggested the ccNSO Council to undertake an extensive review of the ccNSO Onboarding Course on ICANN Learn, before having the course translated in the various languages ICANN provides translations in. The Council then requested the OISC to take all steps necessary to start and complete the review as soon as possible, including but not limited to seeking volunteers to assist in the review, and developing a work plan and report to the Council on a regularly basis.
A small team of ccTLD representatives – under the auspices of the OISC - is now expected to review the course and to recommend improvements. The team will perform an extensive revision of the current course, addressing both content, accessibility, and other aspects.
