Requesting Proposals for Online Learning Series

Executive Summary

The Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape works to end sexual violence and advocates for the rights and needs of sexual assault victims. PCAR partners with a network of rape crisis programs to bring help, hope, and healing around issues of sexual violence to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. PCAR assures that communities have access to quality victim services and prevention education by providing funding, training, materials, and assistance to a network of rape crisis centers that serve all of Pennsylvania’s 67 counties. PCAR provides resources and training on sexual assault-related issues to professionals across the Commonwealth.


PCAR is seeking to partner with an organization, individual or team to create high quality, interactive, online learning modules on topics including but not limited to sexual violence, LGBTQ community, and cultural humility. Modules are expected to be 15 to 30 minutes long and the content will be adapted from provided materials. We are seeking creative developer(s) that have an understanding of effective online learning principles and emerging communication strategies. Additionally, we would prefer to work with developer(s) that have experience with other social justice or public health issues, and/or are located in Pennsylvania.


We are looking for a consultant or group who has prior experience creating online learning modules. This project will require collaboration and we seek a partner that would be able to complete projects as soon as June 30, 2023. Successful respondents must agree to work within PCAR’s publication standards. All modules will need to be developed using iSpring and meet 508 Compliance specifications for accessibility for people with disabilities.

Proposals should include the following information:

  1. Applicant name and/or agency and contact information.
  2. Describe relevant expertise and experience related to online learning development. 
  3. List specific work you have conducted with a similar focus and provide two examples of previous work.
