Telegram has announced a crowdsourcing initiative in which they will distribute EUR 400,000 among creators of educational tests. The announcement comes after the company reached 400,000,000 monthly users, up from 300 million a year ago.
With 2 billion students currently away from schools, the world is in dire need of online educational tools. Telegram’s contribution to solving this problem is by creating a database of educational tests for all subjects and levels.
Interested participants will be required to use @QuizBot to create and publish an original educational test on any subject at any difficulty level, in any language from basic Medieval European History in English to Mikrobiologie für Experten auf Deutsch. Developers can add any media they require to their questions, but should make sure all intellectual property rights are respected.
Telegram will publish the quizzes submitted in a searchable directory. Based on their quality and popularity winners will then be announced in several stages. Submissions for the first stage end on May 15.
Last year alone, Telegram distributed 2 Million Euro among the winners of our contests.
