About

CourseWorld.org, a fast-growing 501(c)(3) nonprofit that manages a video library of 50,000 free Liberal Arts lectures, is looking for talented board candidates who share a passion for liberal arts education and the possibilities of online technology and social enterprise.

Responsibilities vary based on individual backgrounds and areas of expertise. Generally speaking, as a small but fast-growing grassroots initiative, we are looking for assistance in professionalizing our organization, scaling outreach, redesigning our online platform, and helping to secure funding.

Our initiative is fully volunteer-run, comprised of a global network of smart and passionate individuals from the private sector, academia, and NGOs. No one (CEO included) receives compensation of any kind.

For further background, interested candidates are welcome to request a handbook that outlines the structure of our organization, volunteer activities, and initiatives. To express interest, please contact justin [at] courseworld.org

Together, let's make it possible for anyone in the world to access a quality liberal arts education for free.

OUR BELIEFS

1. Everyone deserves a world-class education for free.

2. Educational videos should be easy to discover and access.

3. In a world that glorifies celebrities, athletes, music icons, politicians, entrepreneurs, and the like, it’s time we turned teachers into rock stars.

4. Technology is only as good as the humanity behind it; people give meaning to platforms (e.g., via curating, categorizing, and crowdsourcing).

5. The liberal arts are core to who we are and merit the best resources we have.
