English as a Second Language instructor/author

PEOI, a provider of online university-level courses free of charge in seven languages with students in 121 countries, is seeking to meet disadvantaged students' urgent need to learn English by offering an English as Second Language (ESL) program. Five ESL levels are planned. Volunteer authors are offered to work in teams to create various learning opportunities on PEOI. The text of the ESL level 1 course is now completed, and ESL01EN has about 4,000-word-recognition questions. About 10,000 more advanced test questions must be added to ESL01EN, and creating these questions requires advanced computer skills. Please visit www.peoi.org and see "Volunteers needed" in the "Support" section for further description of this important project. Experience with ESL training required. Work at home on your own computer and at your own time, yet make a big difference for millions of poor students all over the world. Thank you for your interest.

Type of help: To facilitate the English Second Language program
Languages spoken: English
What else ...: PEOI, a provider of university level courses free of charge at www.peoi.org, seeks authors with a background in teaching or work experience, who would like to join a group of colleagues developing hundred of courses in 79 fields of university studies. Authors are welcome to work on chapter text, cases, assignments, reading lists, summaries, class discussions and test questions, as well as research and add examples, statistics and citations. Experts in illustration, video and programming are also needed. All PEOI's course pages are in HTML. Authors will not be responsible for any HTML code, but only for the text in between. Some content can be imported from open education resources, i.e. material that is not copyright restricted such as in wikipedia or courseware at major universities. You must have the skills to locate and import such material. Help disadvantaged students and aspiring professionals improve their lives by giving them a university education, and contribute to economic development of the country in which they live. With lockdown of libraries and universities, and many universities moving their courses online at exhorbitant prices, your teaching at PEOI is all the more important.
