It has been three years since OpenSpeaks was developed as an open toolkit for audio-visual documentation of languages, especially indigenous, endangered and other low-resource languages. Like all other educational resources, it also needs an update. We plan to run a toolkit-wide update and a complete renovation of the first chapter — “Consent, Rights, Copyright and Open Licensing” — as it sets the foundation of the entire toolkit. Your inputs will be of great value to help us improve the resource.

The form is designed to collect specific inputs that are key to the new additions or improvements. But it also has room for you to share more that are not asked. Whether you are a professional in documenting languages or you only know others who are, we would love to hear from you. Every Open Educational Resource (OER) is built by a community and OpenSpeaks is no exception. With your permission, we would love to attribute for your contribution when we publish. You can prefer to be attributed anonymously or with your name and organizational affiliations.

The form will be open for three months (December 2020 – March 2021). However, the inputs collected by December 15 will be used for beta update that is due by December 31.

What’s next

We will use your inputs to improve the toolkit in two phases. Once updated, we will reach out to you again to update about the release. If you or anyone from your community are interested to translate the updated content into your language (including video guides), we will be happy to direct you to the source text and other source files. All the content including the source materials will be released under a CC-BY-SA 4.0 License.


This update of the OpenSpeaks toolkit is possible because of the Creative Commons Global Network Communities Activity Fund.
