Economics faculty looking for top microeconomics students to review and correct captions for instructional videos

Economics faculty looking for top microeconomics students (all A grades in Econ 100A, 100B and 100C) to review and correct the captions for instructional videos.

Captioning of intermediate microeconomics videos was crowdsourced to non-economists.  Mostly they do a great job, but some of the captioning is inaccurate either because the economics vocabulary is wrong or general confusion.  We need a few sharp students who are (1) fluent in English and (2) know intermediate microeconomics well to go through the captions and correct these mistakes.  The captions are in a text file.  The job involves watching the video and the captions and then correcting the text file with the captions.

Here are some more details:

One of the graduate students who has been doing this work will train you.

You will be sent the links to the videos. You can work on this project at home – there is no need to come to campus.

We are looking for someone who can start working now and is able to put in at least 15 hours per week.  We are not sure how many weeks this job will last but likely to the start of classes.

You will be paid $11.00 per hour.

Please contact Melissa Famulari (mfamulari@ucsd.edu) if you are interested in this job.

Positions are open until filled.
