  • 4 people are interested

If you’re interested in creating educational content and have a desire to help underserved children gain access to education, this is the volunteer role for you! Oppia is looking for passionate individuals to join our Practice Questions Team to help implement practice questions on our site, as well as come up with new questions to help students practice their skills.

Who We Are

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 platform, Oppia (http://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. With the presence of COVID-19 today, 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.

We are looking to build upon our basic mathematics curriculum and further engage learners by developing practice questions. We’ve found that learners who struggle with a mathematics topic need practice with lots of varied questions that approach the same concept from different viewpoints. Currently, we are creating practice questions for key skills that we want to help students learn, and are starting to upload these to our site.

We are currently seeking detail-oriented individuals who can help upload existing questions onto our site as well as create new questions. This process includes writing succinct and clear explanations, identifying common misconceptions that learners face, and making edits following our review process. We pride ourselves on offering high quality content to learners, and the Practice Questions team plays a key part in this! We welcome individuals who are willing to learn and grow through this opportunity, and are happy to guide those without experience in curriculum development or creating educational material.
