E-learning intern

What we need 

HREA seeks an intern to assist with developing online courses. The intern will assist HREA to convert design mockups into templates, import content into the course authoring software (Articulate), and help to edit and import voiceover files into the course. The e-learning intern will also beta test different versions under development. This is an opportunity to learn basic skills in course authoring, instructional design and project management.

Time permitting and depending on the intern’s particular skills and knowledge, he or she will also help the Program Director with additional tasks.

Required Skills 

A candidate needs to have basic skills in Microsoft Office applications – PowerPoint in particular. The intern will also be expected to have strong writing, editing and research skills. Previous experience with graphic design or course authoring software is a plus, but not required. Spanish language skills are also a plus, but not required.


Starting as early as 1 September 2015, but we are flexible about start date. We are seeking an intern who is (ideally) available at least until December 2015. At a later stage, we could discuss the possibility to extend the internship into the spring.


At HREA’s office in Central Square (689 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA 02139)

Hours Required 

The intern needs to be available to spend at least 6 hours in the HREA office each week, with the possibility of working additional time in office or remotely. We can be flexible on scheduling.

Support available

This internship is unpaid.
