evolunteering opportunities education and devleopment

Hi all, I am posting this information as someone familiar with this project and also because I know many in the CASID community are interested in staying involved in community development initiatives.

 

Are you looking for a volunteer opportunity that can contribute to education in under-served communities around the world?

 

Rumie is looking for volunteers to contribute to a LearnCloud (compilation of free open access information).

 

For information see: https://www.rumie.org/

 

This is a non-profit organization that makes access to free digital education for underserved communities. They have tablets that can be uploaded with free educational materials and then used by students to learn freely (without costs of
textbooks, etc).

 

From the Rumie website: “In 2015, Rumie launched the LearnCloud: an online repository of high-quality, free educational resources. The LearnCloud is crowdsourced by educators and other volunteers around the world. With our upcoming LearnCloud
app, it will be accessible via any mobile device – not just Rumie tablets. Become a LearnCloud volunteer – an official UN Online Volunteering opportunity – and donate your time and knowledge to the cause! Visit the LearnCloud to see how.”

 

If interested, just
sign up here
then we will reach out to you soon to gain insightful feedback about product changes and content creation. 


Best, Rebecca
