What did Peace to the Planet need?

Fredrick helped Peace to the Planet select & set up a Learning Management System (LMS) platform and train them on how to use it.

Why is this project important?

It's such an opportune time to reach kids at home in the online learning environment. We were getting ready to publish and launch physical/in-person clubs but now see this opportunity to create trusted and valued relationships with kids and families at this unusual time--and our message is so relevant and necessary and we think it will strike a much-needed chord.

This project will save us $6,230, allowing us to focus on myriad other administrative and development tasks we must also do with a nimble nonprofit team

What did Fredrick (Rick) have to offer?

Hello,
I've set up and managed online learning systems including Moodle and Classroom.
I'm experienced, thorough, and patient. Most of all, I have a desire to help and free time to devote to a project (I retired in Sept 2020).
Can we chat more about what you have in mind and how I might be able to help?
Thanks,
Rick

What did they have to say?

We had a vague sense of what we wanted to accomplish--taking a print curriculum for kids and making it virtual and interactive and engaging, and also planning for registrations and contact management while upholding privacy requirements. We knew from the first call that Rick got where we were going and that he would be able to help tease it out and get us where we needed to be on the technology side. That was the part that we just couldn't "see" clearly. He helped us build our back-end curriculum stuff in FlipGrid, a Microsoft educational platform used by teachers and families around the world, while also guiding us on Google forms and maintaining ongoing communication (almost daily!) via Slack (he was open to using whatever methods: email, Google Docs/Drive, etc) for communication and commenting back and forth. We had a few awkward moments at the start just trying to figure out the outline for content. Our outline was way too lengthy and we felt his was a bit too short. So somewhere in the middle it all started to come together. He's also made himself available for support in FlipGrid if we need it for our facilitators and for any other program facilitation we need. He's been outstanding and we highly recommend him for his responsiveness and obvious skill and technological training and experience in the virtual learning space. Thank you Rick, for everything!
