Ninja Academy is a community project dedicated to teaching volunteers to segment and subtitle on Viki. In addition, we strive to help users learn about the numerous other volunteer opportunities available throughout the site. We welcome new and veteran contributors to stop by our channel to exchange knowledge and skills.

Segging Academy is a program designed to prepare volunteers to segment in any channel. On-air, off-air, English, Spanish, Korean, Taiwanese, Japanese — whatever you're interested in, we'll help you gain the skills to segment!
The segmenting program consists of two parts: Sandbox and Academy. In the Sandbox, you become familiar with the segmenting tools and expectations. Then, you have the option to continue to the Academy in order to perfect your skills. We recommend completing the entire program--both Sandbox and Academy--in order to best be prepared for segmenting in on-air and archived projects.
There are five levels of different languages in the Academy, each taught by different sensei. If you would like additional experience segmenting a particular language, you may choose to specialize. Finally, there is a graduation test at the end of the program to test what you have learned! The test includes a short written and segmenting portion.
Subbing Academy is a program designed to help volunteers acquire the proper skills to effectively subtitle or edit. Volunteers must have a good grasp of their language of interest.
There are two available branches of the program: Subbing Academy and Editing Academy.
In Subbing Academy, you work on several videos guided by a sensei. The sensei provides feedback regarding proper formatting and translating.
Editing Academy is the alternative to Subtitling Academy for those who only speak English or do not have their language as a current training option. In Editing Academy, you work on several videos guided by a sensei in order to learn proper formatting. In addition, we provide basic segmenting training to help you become a well-rounded editor.
