If you love to learn, we want your help. CourseWorld (www.courseworld.org) is a leading online education platform for the liberal arts. A fast-growing nonprofit startup, our free video library includes over 50,000 video lectures in the Arts and Humanities.
This is a virtual/remote opportunity, meaning you can work from anywhere. (Alternatively, you may participate on-site in NYC.)
Commitment is 5 to 10 hours per week for a minimum of two months. Unpaid. Course credit may be available depending on your school. We offer several types of internships (or you may do a combination):
VIDEO PROJECTS: Help build our virtual library by adding, tagging, and categorizing videos (~30 per week) within a desired subject specialty. Whether your passion lies in the Humanities (e.g., Literature, Languages, Philosophy) or the Arts (e.g., Art History, Music, Theater), you'll be helping to build a valuable educational resource--and hopefully learning a lot in the process.
WRITING PROJECT: Write blog posts that educate and inspire readers -- by reviewing lessons from select video lectures in the liberal arts.
MARKETING/PR PROJECTS: Help promote our grassroots initiative by growing our community on Facebook (www.facebook.com/courseworld), Twitter (www.twitter.com/courseworld), and Pinterest (www.pinterest.com/courseworld). Write and edit status updates; contribute to online discussions; design witty image macros and quotes.
DEVELOPMENT/FUNDRAISING PROJECTS: Help research and write proposals to potential funders, and assist with other projects pertaining to fundraising and nonprofit/arts management.
