Know it Wall (KiW) is a new public engagement website, based at UCL and Imperial College London, that aims to popularise academic research across all disciplines, from arts to sciences. KiW takes 1000-word texts that academics write, edits them and turns them into short audio- and video-documentaries.
As a result of having won Jisc’s education technology competition and released its first video-documentary, KiW is looking to expand all its teams and has a number of new positions in each of them. All the positions are voluntary (no one at KiW receives a salary).
WEB DESIGN AND PROGRAMMING TEAM
Designers (including UX designers): These roles involve designing new features that will appear on the website, with a focus on UX through user testing. These features range from improving UX on the website (for example, a feature to navigate easily between episodes) to designing how users can interact with our episodes through annotations. Including a link to recent work, or a portfolio, in the application is desirable but not required. Programming skills are useful but not at all necessary.
Those interested in any of these positions should e-mail Miguel Dos Santos – specifying the role/s they are applying for, attaching a CV and, if the role so requires, links to recent work or a portfolio – at firstname.lastname@example.org.
