Grant Reports

Nicole Li for project Elementari shares in progress report update on web monetization for our educators and artists

While there have been delays, we’re excited to announce that we are making progress on adding support for web monetization for our educators and artists (in addition to making Elementari just better).

Quick Recap:

ℹ️ Help Center. Our website finally has a Help Center and it includes some articles on web monetization! The source code will be released shortly.
👩‍🏫 New Lesson Plan Creation + Library. The development of the flow from creation to submission to publishing took longer than expected, but we are in the local testing phase with web monetization enabled.
🎨 Art Contests are launched!
For the technical developments, we’ve been mostly working on how educators can publish their web-monetized lesson plans on Elementari, developing our Help Center, and doing a lot of backend work (so there's not much to visually show).
A large focus for us is refining the communication of web monetization to a general non-techie audience. To do so, we’ve done a lot of reading, held some informal interviews with educators, are developing our survey, launched our art contests, and scheduled our first round table on web monetization. Finally, we’ve spent the past couple of weeks taking time to get to know other platforms, meeting with the web monetization community, and finding ways to collaborate long term.

The Grantee Report

This week we are highlighting two of our grantees New Universe & Rashon Massey

new universe
Wouldn't it be cool if people of all ages can quickly create & share games as easily as on any social network?

Check out the platform created by #NewUniverse and how it facilitates direct payments to creators of games in this granteereport.

Project Updates

graeme for Prototypr has found a sound way to track micropayments

Hey all, I've just built an interesting little experiment!
Using the Web Monetization JavaScript API, I tried listening for micropayments coming through on individual articles, and creating a running total of micropayments received. This gives a fairly accurate picture of how much money each individual article has received.
Even if an author has not created a payment pointer, we can track how much they earn, and send it them!

You can watch Graeme’s quick video to show how it’s working at the link above.

From the Community

Our Ambassador Erica Hargreave has been hard at work building our new YouTube Channel

I've been busy building a new YouTube Channel to spotlight the Interledger Community:
Slowly adding Interledger related videos that our community has created to the playlists. If you have an Interledger related video on YouTube that I haven't yet added to the playlists, please add a link to it in the comments below.
