OCW project up to twenty universities joined the community of OCW in Japan, which has been conducted by JOCW, Japan OCW Consortium. All of those activities from member universities were focused on distribution of OCW content from each university. After 2008 or 2009 member universities and their newly distributed courses has been decreased gradually. Recently some universities still remain in JOCW and they are continuing distribution of courses as OCW. As mentioned above most of all activities related Open Education were focused on distribution courses from Japanese universities. In 2015 Asuka Academy has been established as NPO to redistribute quality OER from the world famous universities after translation to Japanese. First step of the organization was recruitment of good translators to give their special skill as volunteers. We selected the first course to make translation from MIT OCW, most visited courses at that time. OCW courses are very high quality in terms of depth and length, but they seems to be something inaccessible especially for younger generation like under eighteen. So Asuka Academy added the OER contents for younger generation for example MIT-K12 contents, AFP WAA(World Academic Archive) and short clips from Open University of United Kingdom. Those contents could be good candidates not only for learning but also for translation. Actually some high schools joined the translation community and made translation as informal project in the schools. They found the course translation had various aspect of learning, not only understanding of subject but also language learning and social learning to give social contribution as enlargement of learning opportunity.

Current status of Asuka Academy is as below;
Translated courses: 103 courses, Total enrollments: 31,000, Registered learners: 8,700, Total translators: 1,500.
