wHAT CONTENT DO I HAVE TO CREATE?
Our Learning Platform is feature rich with interactive videos, quizzes, simulations, assignments and more. You could help a course creator build these digital activities, to supplement their live class.
How many hours will it take?
As a content creator you need to have topic clarity and an imagination to look at the subject in an innovative way. Then the production becomes faster, since you are only looking for tools (images, audio, video). A quiz can be created in half an hour, while a video could take days.
How do I create content ?
Our pedagogy team will orient you to the course and topic under production. A clear outline will be given of what content is to be developed based on this. You will be exposed to the tools and then your on your own in terms of creating it. There are also plenty of web tutorials since we use the globally popular Moodle LMS.
Who owns the content created?
All of Tamarind Tree’s work is in the public domain. We produce and release content under the Creative Commons ( CC-BY) license so that it is freely available to all to adapt and revise. We also only use Open Educational Resources (OER’s) while creating content. You will be oriented into these practises.
Whats skills do I need ?
A richer set of digital skills (imaging, audio, video, etc) is desirable though not compulsory. However absolute comfort and joy 🙂 being online is a pre-requisite to becoming a content creator. Think of yourself as and educational DJ – learning to use ready resources, mixing them with stuff created by you to have a new piece of work.
Where is it published and how is it used?
All our content is currently embedded into our Open Learning Platform – My Big Campus. Videos are released on different video platforms (vimeo, youtube) and we also release as much content as possible into the OER world.
