Abstract: 
Technologies are providing exciting horizons to expand communities of practice and
to create Virtual Learning Environments (VLE). For Public Service Interpreting and
Translation (PSIT), this is an opportunity to think in terms of partnerships and communities
of practice. Creating an open Virtual Learning Environment would increase
the possibilities of learning, facilitate language-specific communities of practice,
and help develop resources for minority languages. It would also help Public Service
Interpreting and Translation stakeholders share resources and knowledge beyond the
traditional boundaries set by courses, schools, or countries. MOOCs are good examples
of open educational resources that form part of a Virtual Learning Environment. The
Massive Open Online Course Get Your Start in PSIT is an example. The main objective of
this article is to present the development and first results of the implementation of this
free open course.
