Steemit Crypto Academy Weekly Update #17 [ June 7th, 2021 ] - Recruiting More Professors

in SteemitCryptoAcademy12 days ago

Season 2 of the Crypto Academy has now come to an end.

We are currently reviewing this and working on some exciting new developments for the next season that will begin in two weeks.

Because of the continued growth in interest we will be expanding the Academy to have three levels of courses - Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced.

Taking on board a suggestion from Professor @Sapwood the Beginners level will be set up to follow on from the Newcomers Achievement Tasks for those wanting to expand their crypto knowledge.

The Intermediate and Advanced levels will have progressively more difficult courses and homework tasks with progressively higher entry requirements but also progressively higher rewards.

This expansion of the Academy means we need to recruit more Professors so today we are opening applications again for anyone interested.



The Steemit Crypto 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.

They also receive small upvotes from @steemcurator02 on some of the feedback comments they leave on the students’ homework posts.


We are looking to recruit several more Professors although we won’t know the exact number until we have finalized the plans for the expanded course system in the next few days.

Participation in the weekly homework tasks will be one of the factors considered in the selection process.



How to apply to be a Professor

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.


Application posts can be in any language, and should be published by 11pm UTC on Saturday, June 12th.

Please include the tag #professorapplication (and your country tag) and put a link to your post in the comments below.

We plan to announce the new Steemit Crypto Professors by Thursday, June 17th..



Thank you,

The Steemit Team

Sort:  

Thank you so much.

The Newcomers and naive users will now be motivated to join and complete the task in the crypto academy after graduating(or completing Tasks) from the Newcomers community. This will definitely ensure a smooth transition and will surely cater to the interests of those candidates who seek to expand their knowledge and know-how of the crypto ecosystem.

The pro users will continue to bank upon with the advanced use-case and Tasks in Crypto Academy.

This will certainly proliferate a new era of crypto literacy in Steem Blockchain where every category/level of experience will be addressed.

Thank you again.

Steem on.

Yeah... Prof @sapwood.. This is all your idea and it is top-notch. A whole lot of new comers always wish to be part of the academy but because of some constraints, they always feel discouraged. Thank you for this suggestion that these new comers get their selves involved in the academy. Never in the whole universe have seen a mind blowing, educative, investing and rewarding platform as steemit.

I'll steem on till my last breath.

Pro @sapwood, if you don’t mind sharing, who can apply for this opportunity. The requirements involved. Not what has been stated. But your reputation and SP counts right?

If you are a student, then eligibility criteria:-

  • Min SP- 150
  • Min rep 50
  • Should not be a repeat spammer/plagiarist(We keep a curated directory of such users)
  • Should not power down

If you want to apply as a Professor, then it is already explained in this post, please read it once again.

Thank you.

Thank you professor @sapwood

sir how i apply for a professer

What a great and educative platform...
Am naive and today is my first time login into the platform. I don't know if there is a training for new comer to embark on in order to get use to the platform

Thanks professor @sapwood. Please what do U mean by pro users?

Pro users(or Advanced users) means those who are having more than average knowledge/experience of crypto.

Thank you.

Thanks for sharing information

HOW WORKS STEEMIT?

• Steemit is designed as a decentralized application (DApp) built upon the Steem blockchain, using the eponymous cryptocurrency STEEM to reward users for their content.

• By voting on posts and comments, users get to decide the payout of those posts.

• Users also get so called "Curation Rewards" for finding and upvoting content that gets upvoted by other users afterwards.

STEEMIT – HISTORY

• On July 4, 2016, Steemit, Inc., a company founded by Ned Scott and blockchain developer Dan Larimer, launched the social media platform Steemit as first application built upon Steem blockchain.
• On July 14, 2016, Steemit announced on their website that they were hacked. The attack, according to them, has compromised about 260 accounts. About US$85,000 worth of Steem Dollars and STEEM are reported to have been taken by the attackers.

• In March 2017, Daniel Larimer stepped back as Steemit's Chief technology officer and left the company
.
• With the STEEM price dropping during the 2018 cryptocurrency crash, Steemit faced financial difficulties and had to lay off 70% of its staff.

• On January 22, 2019, Steemit announced structural changes in their leadership team. Former CEO Ned Scott was named Executive Chairman, Elizabeth Powell, the former Head of Communications & Advocacy was named the new Managing Director.

soynuevo en esta plataforma agradecido por tal valiosa iniciativa se que en un futuro no muy lejano podre formar parte de este valioso proyecto con la ayuda de ustedes

The Steemit Crypto Academy community, together with all its members, makes a great contribution to the Steem blockchain.

It's a good idea to refer all users to the community.

Merhaba, şu an sanırım 3.sezona geçilmiş ama ben 1.sezondan başlayabiliyor muyum acaba bilginiz var mı 🙏🏻 Bu konuda bilgiye nereden ulaşabilirim

Birinci sezondan başlayamazsınız 3 sezon da henüz başlamadı. Formatta değişikliğe gitmeyi düşünüyorlar. Yakında bununla ilgili açıklama yapılacak. Yeni başlayanlar, orta düzey ve ileri düzey şeklinde kurslar yapmayı düşünüyorlar. Şu an için yeni başlayanlar ve orta düzey kurslara katılabilirsiniz gibi gözüküyor.

Muhtemel taslak için şuraya göz atabilirsiniz. 1 hafta içinde açıklama yapılacak .

https://steemit.com/hive-108451/@sapwood/steemit-crypto-academy-or-comprehensive-summary-sheet-season-2-or-proposal-for-season-3

Bu makaleden sonra aklınızda herhangi bir soru kalırsa buradan ya da discordan geniş bir açıklama yapabilirim.

Teşekkür ederim, ben taslağı inceliyorum 1 hafta içinde kesinleşirse yeni başlayanlar için olan kurslara katılmak istiyorum. Ben takip ediyorum güncellemeleri ama eğer siz de aklınıza gelir ise kesinleşince beni etiketleyebilirseniz çok memnun olurum.

Rica ederim.
Şu an ki taslağa göre başlangıç kursuna (yeni gelenler) katılmak için başarı görevini en az 4'e kadar tamamlamak gerekiyor. Sizin hepsini tamamladığınızı düşünmüştüm. Başarı görevi 3'e kadar mı yaptınız ?

Yok hayır ben hepsini bitirdim pro verified rozeti aldım hatta Türklerde çok az kişide var 🙏🏻

Çok iyi, tebrikler.
Dilediğiniz başlangıç kursu için uygunsunuz.
Minimum itibar puanı 50
Minumum SP 50
Powerdown başlatmamak
Başarı görevini en az 4'e kadar tamamlamak.

Bir gelişme olursa sizi etiketlerim.

Çok teşekkür ederim yardımınız için, tüm koşulların sağlanmasına çok sevindim. O zaman ben program başlangıcını bekliyorum 🙏🏻

Hola, donde se completan los logros?

This is really great...

Greater steeming experience..

I am beginner at steem

This is really a great opportunity given to steemians of all levels. The knowledge of blockchain is important in our present generation, im positive this will wildly increase the steemit community as many are seeking for blockchain knowledge. Many have been scared of the present expectation of the Crypto Academy homework for past weeks. This is really cool, I'm looking forward to apply as a professor from cameroon.

Wow, this is indeed a perfect plan from you and I pray it becomes possible for implementation. Steem on!

Can't wait to start from the beginners part
Am grateful
Prof @sapwood

I think it is an adorable initiative to
retain and facilitate growth of newbies and also help moderate and advanced level learners to grow further.

I guess you'd make a good Professor, @drqamu.

This sounds better, and am inspired to apply , shortly i will be dropping my application.
Thank you

Expanding the crypto academy in three levels is masterclass idea and it will definitely make things smooth and result in more engagement and learnings at all levels.

wow this is a welcome idea, atleast this will carry everybody along since it will include the newbies.

Great steemians
Greater heights

I LOVE STEEMIT

@sapwood Does Min SP-150 and Min rep 50 apply to prospective professors?

A professor becomes a professor by being a part of that process. So by default, the selection of a professor follows careful scrutiny of the very idea of becoming a professor.

Thank you.

This is a welcomed initiative. Thank you respected Prof @sapwood and @steemitblog for this idea.

This is a wonderful and accepted idea, thanks professor @sapwood and @steemitblog for such move

The crypto academy is such a fantastic program that is helping us learn a lot of things and its all very helpful. Thanks, team for doing the great work

This is excellent news, I have been waiting for this moment, to be able to apply as a teacher in the academy, I will give my best effort to be able to qualify and help the Steemit crypto enthusiast community to learn about really interesting topics.

Financial Markets Analyst.
@lenonmc21

Go for it buddy!✌🙌

Sin duda alguna, sos mas que adecuado para el puesto de profesor! Exitos!!

Muchas gracias por el apoyo profesora @fendit.

Un abrazo y bendiciones...

@lenonmc21

Great! Great!! Great!!! With this wonderful arrangements, every steemian would become a crypto guru in no time. @sapwood, more grace to your flaming brain, and thas to the steemit team for considering the suggestion relevant. One love.

Que idea tan excelente poder llegar a todos los niveles, voy a considerar haber si puedo postularme, saludos......

Thank you @steemitblog and professor @sapwood for this initiative. This will boost the activities of the community and give newcomers the opportunity to learn about cryptocurrency technology.

woow , a great oportunity for pioneers in the academy to get involved in training new ones , i love this idea

I want to thank you for your support and for motivating me to learn more about the world of trading and blockchain. It would be great if in the future we could have practical classes either by Discord or through videos to better understand the more practical aspects.

I look forward to the next season!

Veo a steem como la futura red social donde aprendes cosas , y recibes Recompensas por aprender, algo que sería una revolución total en la nueva forma de aprender. Ya que por temas de covid muchas escuelas y universidades han cerrado.

Thanks.

Que buena iniciativa que evaluen de acuerdo al nivel de conocimiento de los participantes , Excelente

I just reactivated on steemit maybe about 2 months ago. and honestly I was waiting for this week's class and wanted to participate in it but unfortunately the class has closed and I have to wait two more weeks.

Hola como están, me parece muy buena sugerencia del profesor @Sapwood porque eso de clasificar los talleres es mucho mejor que existan profesores para las tareas de principiantes, de intermedio y avanzados para que a uno se le haga mas fácil el aprendizaje porque la idea es aprender sobre cripto en la plataforma steemit y de esta manera todos participemos.

Hola @steemitblog, en esta oportunidad comparto una inquietud, esta tarea: https://steemit.com/hive-108451/@isgledysduarte/steemit-crypto-academy-temporada-2-aprenda-sobre-las-criptomonedas-por-levycore-by-isgledysduarte nunca recibió corrección por parte del profesor @levycore, y le escribi en varias oportunidades sin recibir respuesta, la misma fué entregada dentro de las fechas estipuladas.

¿Me gustaría saber que ocurrió, que no fui tomada en cuenta?

Dear @pelon53 pls my homework post which was verfied by you @pelon53 and scored 8.7 has not been voted. Pls i would appreciate it if voted.Thank you @pelon53 @steemitblog

Observation: You posted a wrong link. Kindly check and correct it.

Thank you so much!!! I have corrected it now.

"Because of the continued growth in interest we will be expanding the Academy to have three levels of courses - Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced."
It is a good idea. Thanks for your supports.

good post . helpful . thanks

Buenos días que bueno es saber que continuarán con la enseñanza.

Prof @sapwood,

I think there is one more thing to think of: the upvoting. I have been seeing students complaining for not getting upvote while they have gained good marks from the professors for their work. As to myself, this week, I have done this homework post for Professor @levycore >>>>> https://steemit.com/hive-108451/@aneukpineung78/crypto-academy-week-16-homework-post-for-professor-levycore-privacy-coin which I got 10/10 mark. And it is expiring in a few hours. Not beeing upvoted yet.

I suggest the Academy to soon come out with a solution to this issue. Because, believe me, doing the SCA homework posts is not an easy job. Sometimes they also require money.

Thanks, Professor.

Muchas personas duran mas de 2 dias respondiendo una tarea. hay que tener en cuenta que la velocidad de aprendisaje y creacion de conetenido no es igual para todos, tengo conocidos que en 1 dia hace una tarea mientras que otros dependiendo de la complejidad duran mas de 2 dias.

No conozco bien el tema en concreto de donde surge las monedas. pero una revalorizacion de los votos no estaría de mas, el BTC cada vez se va mas a el fondo, y gracias a la pandemia mucha gente esta desempleada y viven de steemit parece increíble. pero steemit les esta brindando un sustento.

True, @nathan27. It depends basically on the intelligence, and also some other related matters. But, doing SCA task is not like doing diary games posts, for sure. It takes research, some screenshooting and editing, and sometimes money as well.

Steemit Crypto Academy, for me, is like the last hope on Steemit, a place where, I think, I will be rewarded for my work, fairly.

좋은 작가까지 .... 교육

Thank you professor @pelon53 for the encouragement, just that my post is day 6 now.

Personalmente mas que enseñarnos me gustaria que explicaran lo que a los profesores que les funciona , no me sirve de nada aprender algo que no funciona , en tareas anteriores tuve que descartar almenos 3 por que se que no sirven , me meteria informacion erronea y no me llevaria al progreso .

Buenas tareas serian

Gestion de riesgo

Ganar respecto a tu pais.

Juegos de Azar.

Como diferenciar una estafa.

Hay cosas sencillas que ayudarian mucho mas a la comunidad que complicarme con algo que ellos mismos saben que no tienen buenos resultados.

Greetings friends @steemitblog and @steemcurator01

It is beautiful to see the results that are generating the different tasks of the teachers, little by little it has been possible to develop an acceptable level of knowledge in those users who participate in these contests, therefore, I am glad to know that they have planned to expand the scope of the same.

I am at your disposal if you wish to receive support in the revision of homework for future occasions.

Best regards.

Thanks to the Steemit team for this wonderful development once again. In respect to the opening of the role of crypto professors, I submitted my application including the necessary tags but to my greatest surprise, the application failed to appear on the tag #professorapplication.

Although, I have dropped the link to the application in the comment section. I'd like to seek permission to repost my application to see if it's going to appear on the tag this time or if I should leave it just the way it is.

Thanks as I earnestly await your kind response.

Wow
This is a beautiful initiative. I am glad that the newbies are put into consideration in this crytpo training. I have so many newbies that are interested in participating, but due to the high expectations, they were not able to meet up with the demands.
Thank you @steemitblog for always having the interest of community members at heart.
Best regards

Ma fill in for the professor post

Hi! Could you help me with something? I'm not able to change my profile picture and my profile header. I followed the steps from the FAQ section and I'm still not able to do it.

Thanks professors for this bold and beneficial steps.
As a newbie I had the idea of participating in the weekly lessons or assignments but due to low SP and reputation I couldn't.
This is a sign that you consider the total welfare of the entire steemians.
Maybe God bless you for such ideas, I can't wait to start participating.

Please @steemitblog will it be necessary to complete all the achievement tasks in the new comeners community before a newbie will be permitted to partake or will there be a cut-off point in the achievement tasks for the crypto academy beginners participation?

Check out this post by @sapwood.

You will understand better.

Okay
