Steemit Crypto Academy Update [ November 1st, 2021 ] - Recruiting Professors
Season 4 of the Crypto Academy has now come to an end.
Planning for Season 5 is already underway. Make sure you are following @steemitblog for news of new developments.
For the new season we will be recruiting more Professors.
Details of how to apply are below.
Season 5 of the Crypto Academy will begin in 2 - 3 weeks.
The ten Introductory courses will continue to be available in the meantime for anyone at the Beginners level who has completed at least Level 4 of the Achievement Tasks in the Newcomers Community.
Steemit Crypto Academy Professors
The primary task of a Crypto Professor is to produce weekly or bi-weekly course posts on a cryptocurrency / blockchain subject agreed between us.
Each of these posts should also include a homework task for the students to practice and expand their knowledge of the topic.
The Professors are then expected to check, comment on and grade within two days all the homework posts submitted for their course. This is likely to be around 100 posts a week. Professors will generally be working in pairs to share the workload of grading the homework posts.
At the end of each week we ask the Professors to produce a summary post giving feedback on the homework responses submitted.
For all their hard work, the Professors are rewarded each week with generous upvotes from @steemcurator01 on their main course posts and their homework feedback posts.
For Season 5 we are looking to recruit two or three more Professors.
If you would like to be considered as a Steemit Crypto Professor you should make a post with the following information…
a summary of your experience on Steem, and other blockchains, and other relevant off-chain experience or qualifications (no more than 250 words)
a description of why you think you would be suitable to become a Steemit Crypto Professor (no more than 250 words)
an outline of the topics you would cover in a sample 5 week course suitable for newcomers to the crypto world (no more than 500 words)
links to the three best crypto related posts you have made on Steem - ideally these should be Crypto Academy homework posts.
Please note - only people who are participating in #club5050 will be considered for the role of Crypto Academy Professor.
Application posts for both roles can be in any language, and should be published by 11pm UTC on Sunday, November 7th.
Please include the tag #professorapplication (and your country tag) in the first 4 tags and put a link to your post in the comments below.
We plan to announce the new Steemit Crypto Professors by Wednesday, November 10th.
