Background and objectives
We are seeking online volunteers to help us find and upload high-quality, digital learning resources that will help students in Jamaica prepare for the Primary Exit Profile exam. Volunteers are asked to find or create Open Sourced digital resources (in the form of pdf's, YouTube videos or Android Apps) that will help students prepare for their exams. They are then asked to share their resources on the Rumie LearnCloud which will enable students in offline communities to access them via. Rumie offline technology. Resources can be shared directly via this link: This project can be done at any time, from anywhere in the world. To work on this assignment, volunteers will need access to a computer and the internet. Volunteers who add 10 or more pieces of quality content are eligible for a UN Online Volunteer certificate in recognition of their volunteer contributions.
Vocational education and training, and management training
The Rumie Initiative is a non-profit with the vision of a world where everyone has equal access to learning. Our mission is to mobilize the power of collaboration to improve access to quality digital learning resources. Rumie’s approach begins with the LearnCloud - an online repository of high quality, digital, educational content which is crowdsourced by educators and other passionate volunteers in different languages and for different contexts. Rumie then works with local on-the-ground program partners around the world who choose the learning material that is most appropriate for their unique context and load that content onto the specialized Rumie Tablet or any personal Android device via the Rumie App for offline use. Rumie is currently partnered with an organization in Jamaica with the mission of Inspiring and Educating Leaders. Together, we hope to help prepare remote and rural students for the PEP exams, by facilitating access to resources, but we need your help! Help us find quality online resources, and we'll deliver them to offline learners who need them the most.
Volunteers: 20 needed
6-10 hours per week / 2 weeks
Online Volunteers will need access to a computer and the internet to upload learning resources. Volunteers with experience in education and learning are preferred.
