Fund the morphosis swarm
proposal link: https://1hive.org/#/proposal/83
The Morphosis DAO is a swarm with the purpose of providing education and courses for 1hive members to learn various skills. These skills will allow people to make high value contributions to 1hive and other organizations in the blockchain/DAO space. While the classes will initially be focused on skillsets that are internally valuable to the 1hive community, this is unlikely to be the end goal of morphosis, and I believe we can be much more ambitious in the long term.
Previous discussions of the morphosis DAO can be found
- here: Setting up a skills acquisition school/workshop
- and here: Funding Morphosis
- as well as in the morphosis channel on discord
We would like to begin with a pilot using Santigs Data Analysis course described here: Data Analysis Course
The proposed pay for all work related to morphosis is $30/ hr. This includes:
- pay for instructors
- creating review and evaluation documents courses to determine course quality, and iterate on the project
- curriculum resources and creation
- building out some kind of simple platform for the morphosis project, and any associated dev work
This course, and others in future proposals will likely be setup as a flipped classroom model:
- most lectures/resources will be async and available to students through the week
- there will be at least 1 workshop per week that is live time with the instructor, and will be focused on an assignment, and answering questions from students that came up during the week
- the instructor will be available for the rest of the async in discord to help students
This model is based on a popular method of teaching for a number of software bootcamps, and is a way to teach complex topics with much lower overhead than if all instruction was done live with the instructor.
While initially this and subsequent morphosis proposals will have to be funded through 1hive proposals, and will be provided free to students, in the long term the courses could be revenue generating via a combination of charging students and securing partnerships with organizations that are interested in employing people with specific skillsets.
To educate members of the DAO in skillsets that are valuable to 1hive. In the future this may also be broadened to skillsets that are valuable to partner DAOs.
Expected duration or delivery date (if applicable):
Santigs curriculum is a 6 week long course. The suggested time period for this pilot is this full 6 weeks.
Team Information (For Funding Proposals)
Skills and previous experience in related or similar work:
I believe @Santigs has a degree related to data science, although I will let him clarify on that. I have experience teaching and working with a software bootcamp company before and believe I can help recreate the success of that model here.
Funding Information (For Funding Proposals)
The expected instruction time for the 6 week period is based on a $30 / hour wage for roughly 10 hrs / week of work. This comes to ~6.5 HNY at current prices to pay Santigs for instruction. There is likely a similar amount of work for infrastructural and supporting roles including the cost of creating the curriculum, evaluation documents, and building a model for future courses. It is difficult to say exactly where these funds will be spent as this is still an experiment, and the work cannot be done prior to securing funding, however there will be a transparent break down after the course is completed. If there are leftover funds, these will be rolled over to fund future courses, or returned to the common pool in the case where morphosis is discontinued.
The suggested total funding then is 13 HNY for the 6 week period.

I will be creating this proposal in the next few days after the farm proposal passes, so as not to compete for conviction . In the meantime I would like any further discussion here beforehand. Thanks everyone!
