The Akelius digital language course is a project financed by the Akelius Foundation.
The Akelius Foundation is a charitable organisation with a special interest in education for children in need.
The project started in 2015 during the international refugee crisis.
The language course is developed in cooperation with UNICEF and is available on computers, tablets and smartphones and it is free for everyone.
There is also an application for Android devices available in the Google Play Store.
Currently, there are forty-five employees including language teachers, IT developers, musicians and video editors working for the Akelius Languages Online GmbH in Berlin, Germany.
There is a need within UNICEF to also deliver basic and intermediate mathematical education to children in need.
If you are interested in supporting our language team in Berlin by creating state of the art interactive maths lessons, you might be one of our next maths editors, working for Akelius Eureka Ltd in our Nicosia office.
You will design and develop interactive online maths lessons, covering arithmetic, geometry, and algebra.
There will be lessons, drills, and games to cater for different learning styles.
We are using videos and animations in our lessons to illustrate maths problems.
The focus of our content is on practical use of maths in the student’s everyday life.
You will create the lessons in line with the concept of the English master version of the language course and tailor the exercises to the topics of the language lessons.
We are using Articulate Storyline and our own inhouse authoring tool called ‘the generator’ to produce the online lessons.
We will provide training for the use of the software.
We are also creating a new ‘green maths’ course.
There, we teach maths through actions and movement.
The idea is to get students out of the classroom and do ‘hands on maths’ using building blocks, rope, sticks and all kind of materials to experience maths in a different way.
We will be creating a series of videos and teacher guidelines for this method.
