We are a team from Stanford University under a tight deadline and are looking for a team to help us create the content for a 60-90 second video aimed at teaching individuals new to singing how to use diaphragm support while singing. Specifically, the content team will be responsible for writing a script for the video and creating a 5 question multiple choice quiz. Once the script and quiz are completed, we will handoff them off to a multimedia team who will make the video.
For this project, we are looking to recruit an education expert with a thorough understanding of teaching and online learning techniques, two content experts with extensive knowledge on the use of diaphragm support for singin and a multimedia director who will advise the content team and will then serve as the director on the multimedia team. Once the team is recruited, the script and quiz for the project will need to be completed within 4 or 5 hours so that it can be handed over to the multimedia team and finished before our deadline.
The education expert will be responsible for collaborating with the content experts to make sure that the content and final script will result in a useful teaching tool that achieves our goal of teaching individuals how to use diaphragm support for singing. Specifically, the education expert needs to guide the content team by suggesting an overall script/lesson structure, and collaborating with the content experts to provide an effective educational outcome. Once the content experts have provided the content for the script, the education expert will need to work with the content experts and the multimedia director to create the final draft of the script. Ultimately, the education expert is responsible for finalizing the script and quiz and making sure they are useful teaching tools. The script will be need to be written in Google Docs and the quiz will need to be entered into a Google Form. Additionally, an answer key to the quiz will need to be provided in a google doc.
