The Oppia team works to create effective, enjoyable online lessons at scale that can reach millions of people. We want every individual, no matter what their personal circumstances, to have access to learning experiences that are not only pedagogically effective, but also fun and engaging. Our focus is on reducing the equity gap in access to education, and we are currently working on providing free and effective basic math and science lessons that can be played on cheap Android devices to learners in underserved communities around the world. Oppia's lessons have already reached over 2,000,000 users, and learners using our basic mathematics curriculum have seen gains of over 50% from pre-test to post-test. You can read some examples of our work in these blog posts ( post 1, post 2).A key differentiator of Oppia is its unique technology platform, which simulates an interactive tutor by adapting each lesson to individual learners’ needs and providing specific, targeted feedback to help them improve. Furthermore, all our lessons are openly licensed and the platform is open source, which enables a diverse group of educators and technologists from around the world to regularly iterate on and improve them.If you’re a creative marketer with experience in email marketing strategy and a passion for helping underserved children gain access to education, keep reading! Oppia is looking for passionate individuals to join our Email Newsletter team to help craft our newsletter strategy and content calendar.

We do this through the creation and maintenance of our free-to-use platform, Oppia (https //www.oppia.org), the coordination of our passionate contributors, and the development of critical partnerships with NGOs in the communities we aim to serve. Where You Fit InMillions of children are not receiving the education they deserve. Of the 61 million children worldwide who cannot attend primary school, 17 million will never step foot into a school if trends continue. In the wake of COVID-19, millions more children are also seeing interruptions in their daily lives, stability, and education - making it even more difficult than before for many students to get the education they need to succeed.The learners we serve are typically from low-income families which cannot afford to pay for education; in some cases, the parents may not even have had the opportunity to attend school. Thus, to maintain and improve the services that we offer them, it is important to source donations that allow us to cover their costs. Our opt-in email newsletter gives our supporters a way to follow along with our work and receive updates on the impact of their donations.We are currently seeking strong email marketing strategists and writers who can help produce and edit content for our email newsletter. You should be someone who is familiar with blogging/article writing, email newsletter strategy, passionate about the problems that Oppia is solving, and excited about community engagement! While we’d prefer someone who has some experience in these areas, we're happy to work with someone who'd like to learn and develop through this role as well.
