Project Description

As the community using the Kolibri Learning Platform (https://learningequality.org/kolibri/) grows, we would like to have better tools for learning more about their situations and needs. We also want to give the community more opportunities to engage in the process of making Kolibri an even better product. This project would create a community portal that would allow us to learn more about the various communities Kolibri serves, and allows those communities to request content for inclusion in the Kolibri content library.

Project's Requirements

  • Needed: Python and HTML/CSS/JS programming experience
  • Nice to have: Vue and/or Django programming experience

Tasks And Features

The community portal will need the following features:

  • User registration, ideally with social auth sign-in.

  • A form for community members to provide details about their implementations, including the number of learners they are serving and their location, as well as the languages and subjects their learners need.

  • A form for community members to request content sources for inclusion in the Kolibri content library, as well as pages to view and vote for existing content source requests.

Hello everyone!
We are Janhavi and Tanisha from Team Debug Entities.
After going through the project website and repository, we feel that LE Community Portal is the right project for us to contribute and also develop our skills.
Both of us have been learning Data Science as a course since the first semester, which is why we are pretty comfortable in python. We also have basic knowledge of HTML, CSS, JS and Django. We are willing to learn Vue.
Since a new web app will be created, we would like to know if there is anything which we can do before a new Github repository is created and the start of the contribution period. We are looking forward to contributing to the project and would appreciate your guidance for the same.
Thank you!

Hi! These are Shiyu Qiu and Qian Zhao from team 200OK_SQQZ 😄 We are current students from the University of California, Irvine, major in Computer Science. We are interested in this amazing project and hope to start our contribution! We have systematically learned full-stack web development skills such as HTML, CSS, JavaScript, MVC pattern, PostgreSQL, and test units. We are also willing to study Vue and Django.
About Shiyu, I implemented a full-stack website (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTikh5ZMjfM). I programmed JUnit test functions for testing endpoints and Python unit test cases for testing a data frame library during research.
About Qian, she implemented both mobile and web applications during her research (https://medium.com/@felicityzhao224/calit2-research-with-food-smart-1-3b4a64b1360b) and has contributed to another web education-related opensource before. We are looking forward to your reply. Thank you!

Hi Kevin,

Out team is 'Dee Dee & Dexter', we're also interested to apply for this project. I have the similar question, if we can get a community channel link or email to discuss idea, that would be great

tea-n-biccies RGSoC, Monday, March 9, 11:12 UTC

Hi everyone - the RGSoC team here :)
Just a reminder for all applicants that student applications are open until 23:00 UTC on 30 March 2020.
For information on how to apply as a student so you can work on this project with RGSoC, please read the guidance at https://railsgirlssummerofcode.org/students

SAKSHI VIJ, Sunday, March 8, 12:55 UTC

Hi Kevin,
I could not see any community channel that we could join to discuss our ideas that we might have for the project. How do you recommend we go forward with that?

Kevin Ollivier, Friday, March 6, 00:20 UTC

First, thanks to everyone for all your interest in our project!

The RGSoC project will be a new web application for our user community, not an update to an existing one, so there are no open issues or bugs to fix as of yet. We will create a new GitHub repository for the project as we get closer to the start date.

In the meantime, if you want to learn more about our org, software, and community, I would recommend you start by getting familiar with Kolibri (https://github.com/learningequality/kolibri), and perhaps also Studio (https://github.com/learningequality/studio), our content curation app. The technology stack for those projects is pretty much the same as what we will be using for the RGSoC project, so it may give you a feel for the type of web applications we build.

Thanks again for your interest, and feel free to post more questions if you have them!
