College Professors for “Freshman Year for Free” Online Course Initiative
We’re running an educational, disruptive program called “Freshman Year for Free”, intended to provide college access for free for tens of thousands of students.
This philanthropic initiative, in partnership with MIT’s and Harvard’s edX, has been featured in major newspapers such as the Washington Post.
We are looking for top, energetic U.S. college professors to teach 6-8 hours courses designed to help students pass the College Board’s CLEP exam. These courses are built following the edX methodology. Additionally, we film these courses with the latest production techniques at our professional studio in New York. The result is be an impactful, engaging online courses, created to generate a national and international outreach.
In the last month we’ve produced four online courses (Introductory Business Law, Principles of Macroeconomics and Microeconomics and Chemistry) with top professors from George Washington, Columbia, NYU and Fairfield University. In this video, Prof. Paul Berman from GW explains how we have designed the Business Law course.
In addition to benefiting tens of thousands of students, many of them veterans and servicemen in the armed forces, we’ve set up a financial compensation of $5,000 per course, per professor. The workload for professors is based on preparing 6-8 hours of video lectures, following materials that are mostly already written.
The whole effort for a professor can be of 5-7 days. We are flexible, and can work with you during nights, weekends, etc.
Our instructional design team will support you all the time and will take care of the supplementary content and interactivity of the course. The course’s textbook and outline will also be provided.
We believe that you can make an impact!
