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 enjoy networking and building relationships and have a desire to help underserved children gain access to education, keep reading! Oppia is looking for passionate individuals to join our Partnerships Team and help forge partnerships with other organizations, especially in sub-Saharan Africa, Brazil, and the Middle East.

To get started, please fill in this form https //forms.gle/6wQDMXtem198EuPM8 .

Who Are We?

The Oppia Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with the mission to provide high quality education to all. 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 In

Millions 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. Even children that are able to attend school may not be getting a quality education due to a lack of resources that schools face, which has only gotten worse due to COVID-19. It is important for us to come together to bring Oppia’s free lessons to the children who need them the most, so that they can learn key skills that they will need for their lives.

Our Partnerships Team establishes partnerships in our target markets of sub-Saharan Africa, Brazil, and the Middle East. The goal of our team is to introduce partners to the Oppia lessons and make it easy for them to actively use the lessons with students in their area.

We are currently seeking individuals who are passionate about helping underserved children and have an interest in building relationships with organizations that will help further our mission. This role will include conducting outreach to potential partners, researching regions within our target markets for opportunities to help learners, and, most importantly, supporting the needs of our partners. Everyone is welcome to join and be a part of the team, although having some knowledge and experience with one or more of the target markets would be highly beneficial.

Why Oppia is an Organization You Want to Work With

  • Oppia has served over 2,000,000 users.
  • Oppia focuses on effectiveness, and conducts rigorous user testing and RCTs to validate the lessons we offer. Learners using Oppia’s lessons have seen gains of 50+% from pre-test to post-test.
  • Oppia's contributors actively help to provide students around the world with basic education. Please see https //medium.com/@ebelubhuhiose/86b97283edf4 and https //medium.com/@ojobusayo99/6e783aaddb74 for examples of our current work.
  • Oppia has a community of hundreds of passionate volunteers from across the globe, so our meetings are held online at flexible times.
