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 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. Students around the world face difficulties accessing quality education due to conflict, discrimination, and lack of teacher training - and, in the wake of COVID-19, millions more children are also seeing interruptions in their daily lives, stability, and education, which makes it even more difficult for them to get the education they need to succeed.

The Oppia team has developed a web platform and Android app that are designed to address these issues head-on, as well as a series of novel and engaging story-based mathematics lessons that have proved highly engaging and effective with students from underserved communities. However, we want to ensure that our platform and lessons are meeting learners where they are, so that we can fix any gaps and ensure that they are as accessible as possible. We also want to understand the barriers that make it difficult for local communities to adopt Oppia, so that we can help address them.

As a member of the learner feedback team, you will represent the voice of the learner and keep the team honest by identifying any gaps in Oppia’s offerings that prevent learners from learning effectively. You will also gain hands-on experience working with and hearing from members of your own community, as well as practical research and experimentation skills. Additionally, you will be able to influence Oppia’s direction with concrete suggestions and feedback that the team can act upon as a direct result of your work.
