Looking to recruit more members on your team and want to better understand new Contributors' language skills? New Contributors can showcase their language proficiency skills by creating and sharing short video clips when applying to join a team. These Sample Videos can be viewed by Language Moderators and Channel Managers.
Where are the sample videos located?
When applying to be part of a team, new Contributors can share a unique link to their specific sample video with you, the Channel Manager and/or Language Moderator.
Contributors’ finished and published sample videos can also be found on their public profile!
