Season 3 of the Crypto Academy has now come to an end.
The ‘Season SuperStars’ will be announced shortly.
Planning for Season 4 is already underway. Make sure you are following @steemitblog for news of new developments.
For the new season we will be recruiting more Professors. We will also be recruiting for the new role of Promoters to help us take the Steemit Crypto Academy to the next level.
Details of how to apply for both roles are below.
Season 4 of the Crypto Academy will begin in 2 - 3 weeks.
The six Introductory courses will continue to be available in the meantime for anyone at the Beginners level who has completed at least Level 4 of the Achievement Tasks in the Newcomers Community.
Steemit Crypto Academy Professors
The primary task of a Crypto Professor is to produce weekly or bi-weekly course posts on a cryptocurrency / blockchain subject agreed between us.
Each of these posts should also include a homework task for the students to practice and expand their knowledge of the topic.
The Professors are then expected to check, comment on and grade within two days all the homework posts submitted for their course. This is likely to be around 100 posts a week. Professors will generally be working in pairs to share the workload of grading the homework posts.
At the end of each week we ask the Professors to produce a summary post giving feedback on the homework responses submitted.
For all their hard work, the Professors are rewarded each week with generous upvotes from @steemcurator01 on their main course posts and their homework feedback posts.
For Season 4 we are looking to recruit two or three more Professors.
If you would like to be considered as a Steemit Crypto Professor you should make a post with the following information…
a summary of your experience on Steem, and other blockchains, and other relevant off-chain experience or qualifications (no more than 250 words)
a description of why you think you would be suitable to become a Steemit Crypto Professor (no more than 250 words)
an outline of the topics you would cover in a sample 5 week course suitable for newcomers to the crypto world (no more than 500 words)
links to the three best crypto related posts you have made on Steem - ideally these should be Crypto Academy homework posts.
Steemit Crypto Academy Promoters
The primary task of the Academy Promoters will be to promote the Crypto Academy outside of Steemit and to recruit people to join and take part in the Academy courses.
The Promoters should do this by producing recruitment materials such as videos, banners, introductions to use on other social networks and platforms such as Reddit, Twitter, Telegram, YouTube, Discord etc. They should also be looking to make contact with crypto influencers to encourage them to mention the Academy to their followers.
Once they have recruited new people the Promoters will need to guide them to the Newcomers Community so they can complete at least the first four Achievement Tasks and build up their Steem Power and Reputation so they are ready to take part in the courses of the Crypto Academy.
To record their promotion activities and recruitment successes, the Promoters will be asked to post weekly reports.
Those posts will be rewarded with @booming votes according to their achievements.
We will initially be recruiting up to 8 Promoters.
If you would like to be considered as a Steemit Crypto Promoter you should make a post with the following information…
a brief introduction about yourself, including what country you live in, and your knowledge and experience in the crypto world (no more than 250 words)
a summary of your experience on Steem and in the Crypto Academy (no more than 250 words)
a description of why you think you would be suitable to become a Steemit Crypto Promoter, and what other social platforms you actively use (no more than 250 words)
an outline with initial ideas of how and where you would promote the Crypto Academy (no more than 250 words).
Application posts for both roles can be in any language, and should be published by 11pm UTC on Saturday, August 28th.
If you want to apply for both roles please make separate application posts.
We plan to announce the new Steemit Crypto Professors and Promoters by Friday, September 3rd.
