The postings are slim. Here are two development houses I came across.
CourseCrafters is an ELL development house. There is no specific contact information for interested freelancers, but they do list the freelancers they currently work with. It might be worth some digging if your specialty is ELL.Victory Productions is another development house. They do development in English and Spanish. Freelance information is on their Job Opportunities page.

Slow again. Here's an interesting one. Enspire Learning has some standing positions and some current openings on their Work for Enspire page. I can't tell what's telecommute, but it doesn't hurt to ask them. I found myself practicing my voice talent while driving home. :D (That'll make sense if you visit the site.)
