The initiative was launched in October last year to help Duolingo provide new materials for its growing community of language learners. Anyone can apply to be a course contributor; on the site you can see which modules are in development, which are in beta and their estimated completion date. Duolingo also uses algorithms to ensure contributions are of a high quality.
More than 200 volunteers have worked on the new courses so far.
