Practical instruction Hands-on training If the Incubator has a Lead Candidate or Executive Candidate, he or she shall be able to provide the Learners with practical instruction. Formative assessment Demonstrating Exploratory research Not withholding possible directions from an Lead Candidate or Executive Candidate, the learning outlines can also serve as passive directions.

Exploratory research Observation Discussion Not withholding the Learner's and/or Lead Candidate's or Executive Candidate's endeavors, CNMC Event Administrator shall be able to support the initiatives.
Since project-based learning is a substantial part of Education generally and Cognitive research particularly, the Learner shall work on several projects while being in the Incubator.
- The Learners casually start working on non-profit projects in order to get professional experience. The outcomes of those projects shall be available for the general public at no cost. Those projects may include, but not limited to development of CNM Wiki, videos for any free courses that the Community offers, and/or other free services such as WorldOpp Fellowship.
- One role, CNM Event Organizer, is defined in advance; every Learner is supposed to host at least one CNMCyber event a week. The other roles primarily lay within certain Areas of activities, but are contingent on the state of WorldOpp Project.
- The Learners cannot receive salaries while working on non-profit projects, but are eligible for WorldOpp stipends, WorldOpp internships, and/or WorldOpp reimbursements.
- For-profit projects are preferred designations for the Learners when they obtain needed qualifications. In order to be for-profit, any project shall have one or more outside customers.
- The Learner shall be paid for his or her work on for-profit projects contingent to customers' payments. For instance, if the Learner organizes a paid webinar, which:
- Has received 7 payments $10 each;
- Was promoted through the CNMCyber Meetup group; and
- Has no other expenses,
- this Leaner will get $63 (7 * $10 * 90%) in addition to his or her WorldOpp stipend and WorldOpp internship. Meetup.com charges about 10% for payments and meetup group organizer's costs.
Areas of activities
Areas of the activities in which the Learners are supposed to be engaged can be tracked at the Careerprise bizopp wikipage. They may include, but not limited to, the following.
- Events to be organized may include, but not limited to, Careerprise conference for potential and actual vendors, CNM Cyber roundtable to discuss challenges and brainstorm ideas, and CNM Cyber standup for current WorldOpp Fellow Staff members and/or the other Learners. Roles of the Learners can range from an CNM Event Organizer up to an apprentice to CNMC Event Administrator.

- CNMCyber Meetup, Global DC, and Culture Club DC meetup groups, etc.
- As of August of 2018, the only marketable products are (a) a series of Careerprise conferences and the Incubator itself. However, new products will be added as the Incubator grows. Roles of the Learners can range up to an apprentice to CNMC Outreach Administrator. Those Learners who practice marketing outreach may serve as product owners for CNM Pageware and/or CNM Page.
- The Community finances development of several learning opportunities. The development may include, but not limited to, those:
- Wikipages that are related to the learning. Eventually, no red link shall appear at any wikipage that belongs to the Category: Lecture notes at this CNM Wiki;
- Video- and audio-recordings that are related to the learning and possibly posted at YouTube;

Those Learners who build business may serve as product owners for CNM Labware and/or Fixett.
- The Community finances development of informational technology that would support the Community's efforts. This technology is jointly called CNM Cloud and particularly includes CNM MediaWiki that supports CNM Wiki, CNM Certware that supports CNM Cert, etc. A separate group that consists of professionals develops the actual technology, and there is no more need in coding or integrating, but development of requirements of what needs to be coded and integrated has always been a challenge since the start of the WorldOpp Project. Those wikipages that are related to CNM Cloud in general shall be the key results of these development projects. Roles of the Learners can range from a WorldOpp Fellow Candidate to a WorldOpp fellow. Those Learners who design software may serve as product owners for CNM Farms.
- The Community finances development of its knowledge bases, most importantly, this CNM Wiki. This knowledge base shall provide the customers of the Community, the Community itself, and its associates with all knowledge that is needed in order to learn and collaborate. Page categories are just few examples of the pieces that CNM Wiki currently lacks. Roles of the Learners can range up to an apprentice to CNMC Knowledge Administrator. Those Learners who manage concepts may serve as product owners for CNM MediaWiki and/or CNM Wiki.
- The Community may finance any project, even if it cannot be included in Event organizing, Marketing outreach, Learning development, Organizational building, Software designing, and Concept management, as long as this project can advance the Community and its impact. Particularly, these projects may include re-defining of the Areas of activities. Roles of the Learners can range up to an apprentice to CNMC Executive Administrator.

2019 Incubator presentation
The video of the presentation is published on https://youtu.be/3IlmrwJWpeQ video (3:04). Here is its full text.
- WorldOpp incubator. An environment for the care, protection, and growth of those WorldOpp candidates who would like to become WorldOpp fellows.
- WorldOpp Fellow Candidate. An entry-level role of WorldOpp candidates within an WorldOpp incubator of Friends Of CNM. Future WorldOpp fellows are expected to start out as fellow candidates and later move to the WorldOpp Lead Candidate roles.
- WorldOpp Lead Candidate. A mid-level role of WorldOpp candidates within an WorldOpp incubator of Friends Of CNM. Incumbents of this role are supposed to start out as WorldOpp Fellow Candidates and later be promoted.
- WorldOpp Executive Candidate. A senior-level role of WorldOpp candidates within an WorldOpp incubator of Friends Of CNM. Incumbents of this role are supposed to start out as WorldOpp Lead Candidates and later be promoted.
- Welcome to What Incubator Is. In this brief presentation, we are going to take a WorldOpp incubator and the roles of WorldOpp candidates there. Let's get moving.
What the incubator is
- We start by taking a look at the picture of the WorldOpp incubator. On the left it`s aspirants, someone who is on the job market or considered to be on the job market aspired by this program want eventually to be a part of this. On the right, those are fellows, employees. They are only working, either for Friends of CNM or Friends of CNM Partners. They are on the way to their careers, they have already started them. There should be something in between, some bridge. So WorldOpp Incubator is supposed to play the role of this bridge.
- WorldOpp Candidates are supposed to be there. They are not working yet, they are not earning money in exchange for their work but in incubator people can be paid a stipend which can allow them to work and support themselves, make some living. At least like pay some expenses. There is no any restrictions how to use this stipend but the amount of the stipend depends on the level, Fellow candidate is like the lowest amount, Lead Candidate is like double from Fellow, an Executive is double from Lead or four time more than a Fellow Candidate. Candidates can go through Fellow, to Lead and Executive. What candidates technically do, let’s get back to CNM Digital, if you can recall wiki and fixett are both development hubs, but the difference is fixett is more internal like a private development hub and wiki is open to the public. Usually we offer those WorldOpp candidates who are in incubator work on not for profit projects on the wiki, start developing on the wiki and those who succeed on the wiki they are moved to employees and they start working on fixett. So this is the general idea of incubator.
- This concludes the What Incubator Is presentation. We have taken a look at a WorldOpp incubator and defined roles of WorldOpp Fellow, Lead and Executive Candidates. If you haven't done yet so, you are now welcome to move to Careerprise BizOpps.
