School of Webcraft- Get Involved for April!

Standard

Interested in helping others learn HTML5’s Canvas property? Want to improve your JavaScript skills? Need to make your first-ever website?

Start learning with others at P2PU and School of Webcraft this April!

School of Webcraft at Peer 2 Peer University (P2PU)  wants people like you to get involved in organising April’s cycle of courses focused on open and standards based web development. If you’ve got an idea for a course, study group or workshop you’d like to participate in, just create a course plan or view existing course drafts and offer your assistance to existing participants. Courses are scheduled to begin after April 18th but feel free to propose start dates and course lengths that suit your schedule.

School of Webcraft is developed in partnership between P2PU and Mozilla Foundation with the goal of making it easy for people around the world to gain skills and build careers using open web technology. For April’s cycle, we’re particularly looking for volunteers to lead projects about beginner skills and front-end development, particularly the exciting new features of HTML5 and CSS3. To get some ideas of projects that have previously run in School of Webcraft, you can check out our course archives. But don’t let our ideas restrict your imagination—you’re welcome to propose any web development project as long as it doesn’t rely on proprietary code or software.

P2PU, Mozilla and School of Webcraft are also developing new ways to assess your skills and are giving you the chance to earn badges in topics such as JavaScript and accessible design. If you’ve got an idea of a great badge for web developers to earn, you can make a suggestion here or as part of your course idea.

For all project ideas School of Webcraft’s community is on hand to answer questions about appropriate resources and will provide feedback as you develop your project. From March 14th you’re invited to take part in the P2PU Organiser Orientation with your fellow organisers, and learn to develop your concept and improve your online facilitation skills.  If you’ve got any questions about School of Webcraft and P2PU, organising projects and courses or additional ways to get involved, check out our FAQ.

P2PU welcomes all course ideas in addition to Webcraft related topics, so don’t feel shy — get your idea out there! To get your project up-and-running, head over to P2PU.org to sign-up and register your idea in preparation to begin learning from April 18th.
