Udacity, one of the world's leading online education portals, yesterday announced a partnership with translation platform Amara  to caption and translate more than 5,000 educational videos using student volunteers.


This epic undertaking is significant for a several reasons, it offers a democratisation of video content by making it globally accessible and relevant, and it offers real world experience to students.  Teachers might wish to consider this type of task for their own students,  it is much more meaningful than making endless ppts, and helps develop real media skills within a digital literacy context.
