Description

//: # "=======================
Rosetta Phone: Sharing a library of knowledge and educational apps with offline communities using the Android device they already own. Developing social enterprise models to market Rosetta Phones & Rosetta home devices.

============================"

What are we working on during the do-a-thon? What kinds of support do we need?

How can others contribute?

//: # "=======================
Please say what the best way to contribute to the project or challenge is, sometimes that will just be 'lets discuss here' or 'Ive started a Google doc'.

If you are a project lead, and you already have clear ways people can contribute it might be worth linking to them here.
Language: I speak English, French & Arabic translation skill would be particularly useful.

This is a remote project I'm not 'in the room' in Berlin.

There are a couple of tasks we could tackle depending on the skills and enthusiasm.

===================
Making a .zim file of the boundless courses.

This would involve

a) Install https://www.httrack.com/page/2/en/index.html

b) run htrack on each of the courses listed here https://courses.lumenlearning.com/catalog/boundlesscourses & delete large log file that is created in the content

c) Create .zim (I've never successfully done this bit before) http://www.openzim.org/wiki/Zimwriterfs_instructions

Tools needed:
On Linux
https://github.com/openzim/zimwriterfs
On Windows/Mac:
-Install Virtualbox https://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/5.2.20/VirtualBox-5.2.20-125813-Win.exe

c) Test the file in https://f-droid.org/en/packages/org.kiwix.kiwixmobile/

d) Upload the .zim file to openzim/zim-requests#115

===========================

Another thing that would be useful is just writing some coherent words around why this project is a good idea

===========================

Translating the text on www.rosettaphone.org into French or Arabic

============================

Setting up a https://opencollective.com donation page for the project

============================

Setting up a Facebook group & Inviting people to join it

=================================

Email any grant funders you know personally and ask them to get in touch if they are interested in funding it

==============================

Making .zim files of any of the other proposed content: https://calc.disroot.org/0d5f8o2eubdi which doesn't already have a .zim

============================

If you tweet https://twitter.com/PhoneRosetta I'll get a notification on my phone and try and get back to you quickly.

If you send me email sam bristolwireless.net I'll reply within an hour or two

If you send me a message onhttps://www.manyver.se/ to sam_uk_phone I'll be delighted
