Thank you very much for your great work so far. I really appreciate your openness and spirit of collaboration and would like to hear your ideas on coming up with a content creation plan for the next 6 weeks. Until the end of January my plan is to keep the team of content creators and authors down to 6 (preferably you three with Natalia as our backend manager plus Christian who has been creating these materials.) It goes without saying that Alan is invited to join on in the action at any point in time.
During the initial phase of our project it’s vital that we focus on building structures and work processes while getting to know each as a result. So, here is my proposal:
Elida, you can go ahead and create 10 more TOEI-based reading comprehension texts based on topics we source together. (I agree with the proposal you made via email.) Ideally, the texts cover topics listed here: New level of technological convergence?
Andrea and Sumejja, if you like you can continue creating with our blockchain project. However, if you feel you are running out of ideas you can as well create TOEIC-based reading comprehension exercises of the same format as Elida’s text using such sites as The Cointelegraph or Coindesk as the source texts.
In addition, I have some more writing ideas I can share with you if you like. To me, it’s crucial that from the very beginning we try to work as closely together as a virtual environment permits. Imagine we would be working together in a brick-and-mortar based company. We would have much more opportunity to share information and bounce ideas building a strong work relationship in the process. Unfortunately, a lot of communication doesn’t happen when you are restricted to collaborating online. To compensate for the lack of personal connectivity we should make an additional effort of typing our questions and thoughts into the message box here. I look forward to your ( positive ) responses…
