If your favorite way to relax is to watch Netflix and Amazon Prime, EduBirdie has an opportunity that might interest you. The website will pay 20 lucky people $1000 each to watch at least 3 episodes of 10 different series. The winners will get to choose 5 of the series themselves, but the other 5 series will be chosen for them based on which series are the most popular in the month of July 2021. Some of the series participants may be watching include, “Fleabag,” “The Crown,” “Undone,” Manifest,” “The Underground Railroad,” “The Boys,” “The Witcher,” “Ozark,” “The Umbrella Academy,” “Virgin River,” “Sex/Life,” “Stranger Things,” and “Atypical.”

The job involves more than just watching 10 TV series over the course of a month. In addition, after a participant watches at least 3 episodes of a series, the participant will need to fill out a questionnaire to explain if they feel motivated and inspired (or not) after watching the show. In addition, each participant will also take a short test to see how well the participant can remember new information.

The idea of the challenge is to find out if watching series on Netflix and Amazon Prime can help students relax and actually learn more when they return to studying and learning. Since watching series on popular streaming services is a common way to relax, EduBirdie wants to find out how refreshing and beneficial this form of relaxation actually is.

Anyone age 21+ in the United States, Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, Singapore and Ireland is eligible to apply. You don’t have to be a student to participate but you can be. As long as you are willing to learn, you can apply. If you watch a lot of Netflix and possibly even have it on while you are studying, you are encouraged to apply. In order to apply, you will need to be able to explain why you are perfect for this position.

EduBirdie is a somewhat controversial website. Although the website claims to be a “website writing service” and specifically says on its website, “EduBirdie is totally legal,” some find it unethical. According to EduBirdie’s website, the company “provides students with writing samples and research assistance in order to help them perfect their essay writing skills. Furthermore, EduBirdie does not tolerate plagiarism.”

Yet, an investigation by the BBC in 2018 found that it may be unethical since assignments on the site are completed as they are ordered, which could make the work pass plagiarism checks. Plagiarism, as defined by the University of Oxford’s website, “is presenting someone else’s work or ideas as your own.”
