Project Summary
We have been collaborating closely with NEAR Education team to generate engagement with higher education institutions in Mexico and all through out the Spanish speaking region. Focusing on Mexico to kickstart the program and generate the first Spanish speaking instructors.

Localization of the content will play an important role and we managed to get NEAR in Minutes project localized as NEAR en Minutos as part of the NEAR hispano Youtube channel. Using that content to onboard the NCD bootcamp participants.

We are also getting feedback from two teachers that will help us shape the NCD program so Universities can implement them as part of their offering for their faculty and students.

Next month:

  • Support the 4th NCD bootcamp in NEAR Hispano
  • Translation of the Nomicon site
  • Onboard two Spanish speaking instructors
  • Playbook for other Guilds to launch the NCD bootcamp in their region
  • Partnership with Blockchain Academy Mexico to reach out to their community
