Instructional Designers Sought to Help Children Learn

Monday, July 8, 2013

Do you have time to volunteer your instructional design skills during a three-month period? If so, e-Learning for Kids—a global not-for-profit foundation whose free courseware reached more than 4.5 million children in 190 countries last year (about 50 percent of the students are in the United States)—needs your help.


The goal is to finish more than 20 lessons for Mathworld—a virtual world for learning math in the context of different countries and continents—and to begin the development of more than 200 courses for Scienceworld. To date, more than 300 lessons have been launched from volunteers who have similarly contributed in the past.

If you are a skilled instructional designer who can develop two or more storyboards, and have about 30 to 40 hours to volunteer over a three-month period, consider this opportunity.

To learn more and participate, fill out the volunteer application form at http://bit.ly/GIbakb. You will be contacted and provided a storyboard template (with a manual) and a subject matter expertise package with examples so you can begin.
