Outer Coast is thrilled to announce the return of our Lingít MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) and the addition of two new courses.

Over the past two years, we have been inspired and humbled by the response to the Lingít MOOC led by X̱’unei Lance Twitchell, Outer Coast faculty member and UAS Professor of Alaska Native Languages. And we are excited to continue contributing to Southeast Alaska Native Language revitalization efforts.

  • Shm′algyack/Sm’algya̱x MOOC – Ggoadm ʼTeebn Victoria McKoy, UAS Language Pathways Scholar, will teach the class on Tuesdays & Thursdays from November 8 – December 13, 12noon-1pm. Free and open to all skill levels.
  • The Lingít MOOC will run in January. More information in the coming weeks for dates and class times.
  • The X̱aad Kíl MOOC will run in February and March. More information in the coming weeks for dates and class times.

All three language courses will take place over Zoom. Once you are signed up for a course, you will receive Zoom details before the first class session. Please contact Nirali Desai at nirali@outercoast.org with any questions.
