Some background: In the beginning of April, the Digital October Center and the educational platform Coursera announced that they will be piloting to translate video lectures into Russian. In this vein, subtitles for Kevin Werbach’s course are already available in the Gamification course. Digital October is creating these series of Coursera Moscow Meetups at their headquarters to compliment this effort!
