posted message: New feature: add organizers to your study group. At the moment this is possible when a user signs up. You can accept them as a participant or an organizer. In the future we want to add a "I can help develop this" button where the follow button sits when a project is still under development.
posted message: Hey everyone! I added a section about developing meaningful tasks and would love everyone to contribute their experiences with task design via comments. Your initial experiences are extremely valuable and would love to get some feedback from our beta testers. Please provide concrete examples (and links) to tasks you think are designed well for your topic, or tasks that you would like advice or feedback on!
posted message: Hey Jonas + Participants! P2PU also has an instance of etherpad -> You are free to use it if you like, but works just the same! Looks like you have quite a diversity of participants, too! I imagine it can be difficult to schedule meetings with such a global crowd. Good thing you're taking notes! Will keep following along.. I hope you all get your CC projects funded! ;-)

Openeing your study group to participants:

When you feel that the study group description is complete enough so other people understand its objectives, you can uncheck the "Under Development" box at<you-study-group>/edit/status/ . When you are ready to let other people post requests to become participants at<your-study-group>/content/sign-up/, you can uncheck the "Sign-Up Closed" box at

Hi Zuzel, just playing around with status. Didn't realize "testing sandbox" took the course out of distribution. Lesson learned!

Creating a study group on the new site? Here's what you can expect during the test phase:

April 11 A basic sign-up process for study groups will be available and you should be able to broadcast messages to all participants. Schools will also have a main page for their communities.

April 25 We imagine most study groups will become active around the 25th. Email-based interaction will be available, and study group content will have easy to edit and organize features.

Beyond The list of features above is by no means comprehensive. However, not all ideal social engagement features will be ready by 25 April. New features will be released every two weeks and we will actively keep the community updated on coming developments
