@mburridge is continuing to build out the course in Sensei week by week and has recently completed the draft copy of module 2. He has started adding content to Module 3. The intention is to get at least the text part of the course done by the end of August.

We are discussing how we could add video content to the course once the text part has been finalised. Finally, he has a clear plan about how he wants to incorporate activities and assessments to support learners on their learning journey.

Two Block Theme Development Courses

@psykro and @arasae are in the process of researching and refining the outlines for these two courses, with a focus on course 1. @arasae has completed her course outline, and is in the process of completing rough drafts for the first two modules. She is identifying places as she writes where subject matter experts may weigh in as a super simple way to contribute to a course in progress. @psykro has published his draft outline and is in the process of converting that outline into GitHub issues for content creation. They continue to meet weekly with theme developers to help fill in any gaps in their content creation process.
