Last Mile Health Instructional Design and Course Builds Consultancy in Boston, Massachusetts

The Role

The COVID-19 Digital Classroom created 3 courses on the Community Health Academy?s white labeled TechChange (TC) Platform. In order to achieve the Digital Classroom?s objective of providing community-based health workers and trainers access to quality assured openly licensed content that can be used on mobile devices and shared with local communities globally, this content needs to be migrated from the TC LMS to Moodle so that it may be delivered offline on the OppiaMobile App.

Some of the TC content will require adaptation as the functionality in Moodle is less robust than TC. The Consultant will determine how to best adapt the content, and will develop an instructional design template to ensure consistent look and feel across courses. As more course content is developed it will be evaluated and crafted to align to that template.

Project Details:

  • Commitment ? 4 months at approximately 40 hours per week with an immediate start date preferred

  • Location ? Remote

  • Remuneration ? Maximum estimated fees upon completion are expected to total $23,000. Consultant will be paid upon completion of each deliverable or according to a mutually agreed upon timeline.
