I have experience working with the Training Team!

Thanks for joining! Depending on your interests, there are a few ways you can get involved. For each of the tasks below, the team handbook should help you with process specifics. But if you have any questions, feel free to reach out!

Thumbnail Creation Project

In preparation for the relaunch of Learn.WordPress.org and Learning Pathways scheduled for July, we need to create a large quantity of small graphics – called thumbnails – to serve as featured images for each course, lesson, and tutorial. This will create a visually appealing site that will entice learners to dive in and get started on their learning journey.

Content Creation

Are you interested in creating content? If so, then creating content related to WordPress 6.5, WordPress 6.5.2 and WordPress 6.5.3 releases are our priority today.

Start by searching for a piece of content you’d like to work on in either the 6.5 project board , 6.5.2 project board, or 6.5.3 project board. Once found, comment on the GitHub issue so that we can assign it to you.

Content Translation

Are you interested in translating content? If so, then translating content related to the Localization Foundation project is our priority today. Do you speak Spanish, Japanese, German, French, Hindi, or Italian? Come help us localize content for either these five or our 8 other languages. There are a few courses about onboarding contributors specifically that will help in the WordPress mentorship program:

You can learn how to get started in content localization in this handbook page.

Content Reviews

Are you interested in editing content? If so, then reviewing content waiting to be published is our priority today.

Start by finding a piece of content to review in our content development board. This GitHub view has filtered all content waiting for reviews before it is published. Follow the team’s Guidelines for reviewing content and leave your reviews right there in GitHub.

Subject Matter Expert

subject-matter expert is someone who has extensive knowledge in a particular field or area and can provide advice, guidance, and direction in that subject. If you would like to help vet topics, please visit the Vetting Topic Ideas handbook page.

Triage Developer Issues

Are you a developer interested in working on issues for the Learn website? If so, then working through our Website Development project board is our priority today.

Start by reviewing issues “In Review”. Any help you can provide regarding issues “In Progress” would be great, too. But in general, any attention you can give to any issue would be much appreciated.

If there are enough interested Developers, then we can also create a developer-focused working group so that they can focus on related issues.

Cross-team collaboration opportunities  

Discuss or share ideas of how the Training Team could collaborate more with other Make WordPress Teams such as Marketing, Documentation etc.

  • Anything you’ve accomplished since the last meeting?
  • Do you have any blockers?
  • Can other Faculty or Training Team members help you in some way?

Open Discussions

  • @devmuhib question- Someone has translated several pieces of content, all of which seem to be directly copied and pasted from Google Translate. I have personally reviewed this content and can confirm that the translations are not good in quality and, at times, not readable. Despite multiple requests to modify the content and maintain a certain standard, the issues persist, and the content remains unreadable. What is the appropriate course of action for such translations? @bsanevans had a few suggestions
    • Raise some specific items in the translation
    • If in the same timezone, work on a translation together.

If there are any other suggestions please add to this thread. Translation Discussion

  • @jonathanbossenger brought up- our use of InstaWP to be discussed by the team.
    • @psykro and @bsanevans have added comments on the issue in GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. https://github.com/.
  • @bsanevans brought up- Faculty members are added to the Learn Content Triage team on GitHub. This gives them access to triage issues, change statuses, and most importantly, check-off boxes automatically added by automation. (More info about this group in this handbook page.)
    • What do folks think about extending this permission to vetted content creators, too? 
      • @bsanevans gave more context in the thread.
      • We could offer this access to folks who, for example, meet all these criteria:
      • Is a vetted Tutorial presenter or Online Workshop facilitator
      • Has created 3 or more pieces of content
      • Has requested to be added to the GitHub triage group
      • So, it wouldn’t be something we give automatically, but something we could provide upon request, once there’s a track record of contribution.

@courtneypk, @gusaus, @psykro, @lada7042 supported this idea.

WCUS Contributor Day: Tutorials Workshop (In-Person & Remote)

TL-DR – Tutorials are incredibly daunting work–at least, they can be if you’ve never done it before. I would like to demystify the tutorial creation process for interested training team contributors, both for those who attend in-person and with a follow-up remote session for team members who will not be in attendance at WCUS.

Objectives for this workshop:

Contributors will be able to…

Part One:

-Write strong learning objectives and descriptions
-Write tutorial scripts either on their own or through utilizing (and spot-checking) AI
-Revise each other’s work for accuracy and voice

Part Two:
-Utilize technology to record strong screencasts and visuals
-Create video tutorials for learn.wordpress.orgWordPress.org The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://wordpress.org/
-Review tutorials for learn.wordpress.org in public (in person and online)

Pre-Contributor DayContributor Day Contributor Days are standalone days, frequently held before or after WordCamps but they can also happen at any time. They are events where people get together to work on various areas of https://make.wordpress.org/ There are many teams that people can participate in, each with a different focus. https://2017.us.wordcamp.org/contributor-day/ https://make.wordpress.org/support/handbook/getting-started/getting-started-at-a-contributor-day/.Prepwork

1. Generate or identify a list of potential easy (and high value) tutorials people could write, add to the GithubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. https://github.com/ repo. TagTag Tag is one of the pre-defined taxonomies in WordPress. Users can add tags to their WordPress posts along with categories. However, while a category may cover a broad range of topics, tags are smaller in scope and focused to specific topics. Think of them as keywords used for topics discussed in a particular post. them explicitly with “Contributor Day” to allow us to follow up on these topics at a later date.

2. Create a sample website that can be downloaded from our Github repo and installed (using Local or WordPress playground) to save time on people creating sample sites of their own.

3. Create a community repo / Google Drive (for simplicity) to create folders for the resources created for each in-progress tutorial, which will be linked to in each Github issue.

4. Create a dedicated tools list from the handbook page with the specific tech we will be using.

5. Optionally: We could see who might be interested in doing this ahead of time– who may plan to attend contributor day.

On Contributor Day:

Morning Session 

1. Building Background Knowledge – Onboarding Session: Welcome to the team, how we use the Github board for tutorials, join the team for the day (or longer!)

2. Topic selection! Contributors will pick a topic from the list and/or suggest a topic [and get it approved]. We will go over expectations for what and how to write on Github.

2. I Do / We Do / You Do: Once topics have been chosen, we will start by writing our learning objectives and topic descriptions on the Github issues. As an ID, I will walk around and ensure topics are bite-sized and that the objectives are measurable. We will discuss the importance of strong learning objectives and how they help learners and educators alike.

3. Collaborative Script-Writing: Contributors will write scripts about their chosen topics, potentially using AI to help generate content. They will collaborate with each other and spot-check their work for accuracy. They will add their scripts to their Github pages.

Afternoon Session

4. Tool time! Contributors will download pre-selected screen recording technology (Descript and Openshot most likely), the pre-created sample website (so that work can continue on their tutorial with or without them in the future), install Local (or utilize WordPress Playground), make a copy of the team’s Google Slides, learn where to find visuals, and get started making screen recordings.

5. Direct Instruction: I will teach contributors one process for recording tutorials. As people work, they can upload their work to whatever repository / Google Drive folder, and update their Github comments as they work.

6. Screen Recording Time: Contributors work on recording screencasts to match the scripts for their tutorials. They will upload and link their screen recordings so they can be utilized at a later date and potentially polished if we run out of time.

7. Review time: Contributors who finish will review each other’s work and add reviews to Github.

If they finish entirely, we will have them write quizzes for tutorials.

For Remote Contributors

These same sessions will be adapted for and offered in shorter, recorded online workshops the week after contributor day, and posted on the Learn Online Workshops Calendar. They will also be recorded and added to Learn’s recorded online workshops.

The Ultimate Goal: 

Have contributors record rough drafts of tutorials–and potentially finish them! Since we are in person, we may be able to review work as soon as it is finished (in public on Github, but also in-person)

At any point, a contributor can walk away from the table, leaving a note in their Github issue of where they finished their day, suggestions for next steps, and if they plan to continue working on the tutorial. We will explicitly let people know a deadline for when we may open their tutorial up to others to work on to ensure their lovely content makes it to learn.wordpress.org. They can let us know if they plan to come back and work on it async over WCUS or later, but we will let them know that if they do not come back, another contributor may pick up their work to finish it.

While I know that in the past, people haven’t followed up on finishing their content, I believe we can tag it and leave topics better than we started, complete with strong learning objectives, instructor-approved descriptions, a well-written and spot-checked script, potentially strong materials for recording, or even totally finished tutorials.

Post-Contributor Day

1. Sort content into finished / in progress work, create publishing calendar.

2. Follow-up: For contributors who noted they would like to continue to work on tutorials, we will check to see that they have done so. If they have not completed their work by a certain deadline, we will aggregate their work and allow general content creators to continue working on their topics.

What I need from you:

  1. We need ideas! What are some learning topics that you think might be great for first-time contributors to make a video about? A topic that we can learn about WordPress in 3-5 minutes or less. These can come from the Ready to Create – You Can Help section of our Github or be entirely new–as long as they’re not on learn.wordpress.org at the moment.
  2. Are you interested? Let me know here! If you’d be interested in attending these sessions either in-person or in a workshop, please let me know in a comment below. This doesn’t mean you’re locked into attending, it will just give me a good idea of how many people I might expect so I can plan efficiently.

Thank you, team!
