discussion on how we can use statistical methods to measure and improve the efficacy of http://freeCodeCamp.com
I think I will continue working on this topic. In general there are few good API's for that, but I wonder if we can develop something that suits the FCC case?
You can take for example an URL of a discussion in the Forum (NOTE: it will be truncated!) and use the following API:
I also tried some clustered texts from a previous project that involved communications in this room. You can pick a group of posts at the end of the following notebook:
And use the aforementioned API to see how the API summarizes the content of the posts.
The Automatic Summarization project is currently experimental. The actual added value and therefore the opportunities and adoption of this kind of approach are still to be seen but FCC could, for example, present summaries of the weekly content of the main chats/forums in a more comprehensive way that just listing popular questions, or add summary capabilities so a person can get a general approximation of the main arguments in a on-going discussion.
My assumption is that this could help to facilitate the readability of the communications, ease the search behaviour about topics of interests, and increase conversion and engagement. However I need to investigate if those benefits have been true for other situations when a summarizing tool has been used.

I am trying to find cases that would justify a project as described above: summarization of chats/forum to improve the engagement and reduce complexity of the social media services for Education Platforms. Here a few:
I like this one in particular:
Some researches, questions made and results - for the benchmark:
For what I see, @CodeNonprofit, the challenge IMO is to identify those nonprofit organisations that:
Some recommendations based on that information (off-focus, opportunities):
Apparently FCC should offer training about Cloud Solutions?
Another aspect to put attention to is the gap of the available training for NGO's and nonprofit regarding Technology. This is something that FCC can exploit by offering training for NGO's + tech support. The idea would be to bring clients and (future) service providers to the same market place and grow together.
Interestingly, one issue is security and privacy. I would suggest to check how Tactical Tech is approaching this issue (mostly through activism).
See that there is an opportunity for the FCC project to explore an approach that many nonprofit understand better: making courses that looks more social, not technical oriented.
I would also suggest to develop a parallel project to offer FRONT-END services in mass instead of per project, like an AGENCY: front-end needs are so common for an issue to be dismissed, the market really exists and FCC students are more into it...
In the customisation, think how to STANDARDISE. Modularisation could be a good idea. FCC can offer modular, even turn-key services to organisations instead of only customised Professional Services. A good market research is required...
In my opinion some of your previous questions might already be partially "answered":
Why we want to know:
I think that the survey could make a better impact if:
Hope this helps...
@evaristoc "who in the organization is deciding what software to use"
This is a good question and a related question if it hasn't been asked
Who in the organization implements or distributes the software
When I was interning the organization I was working with originally had their marketing/visual design guy as the IT person for quite a while before hiring a dedicated IT person
