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 https //medium.com/@ebelubhuhiose/86b97283edf4 and https //medium.com/@ojobusayo99/6e783aaddb74 .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 video editor who cares deeply about helping underserved children around the world gain access to education, keep reading!Oppia is looking for individuals who are passionate about video production and storytelling to join our Video Creation team, to work with us on creating compelling videos that tell the stories of our learners and highlight barriers caused by lack of education, in order to advance the cause of universally accessible education for everyone.

We do this through the creation and maintenance of our free-to-use web platform and Android app, the coordination of our passionate contributors, and the development of critical partnerships with NGOs in the communities we serve around the world. Our lessons have 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. We actively work with contributors from around the world to help provide students with basic education; theseblog posts describe examples of our current work. 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.Many people don't realize that a large proportion of the world has limited access to education, and that this denies them opportunities in life, through no fault of their own. We seek to amplify this cause and bring awareness to the voices and stories of these learners, and build a community that advocates for and makes active efforts to support equitable access to education for everyone. We also want more learners and parents in these situations to know about the tools that Oppia provides (such as the offline-playable Oppia Android app with a full interactive basic math curriculum), so that they can make use of them to support their education.We are looking for video creation volunteers who are keen to contribute to this impactful mission and help improve opportunities for education for learners around the world. As a member of the Video Creation team, you would contribute to brainstorming and developing innovative ideas for educational video content that align with Oppia's curriculum, as well as assist with scriptwriting, storyboarding and video production. Experience in brand-building is also a plus! While we’d prefer someone who has experience in these areas, we're happy to work with someone who'd like to learn and develop through this role as well.
