At P2PU, people work together to learn a particular topic by completing tasks, assessing individual and group work, and providing constructive feedback.
This course will become read-only in the near future. Tell us at community.p2pu.org if that is a problem.
Take charge of your education with help from your peers.
The web is an amazing place to continue learning, but doing it on our own can be a difficult task. How can we make plans, achieve goals, and hold ourselves accountable without traditional courses or grades?
posted message: I joined this challenge so I can start to set some goals and a path to accomplish my learning. It is so easy to be unstructured and willy-nilly online clicking and exploring on anything that interests me at the moment. I am looking forward to it. Just got the Edpunk guide onto the Kindle. Thanks for that Anya Kamenetz.

If you've gone through all the tasks you can now apply for a badge.
And if you see that others have applied, please review! Badges are awarded by peers. For the DIY U badge, at least two peers need to review your work. It's quick and easy!
posted message: I am very exited about this. I have been trying to figure it out on my own, (how to educate myself) and this is like finding my ideal being created. This course/challenge is the most obvious best start. THANK YOU for not overlooking it. Could someone tell me if I am suppose to check the first seven tasks as I read them or as I actually complete them. It will probably take me a week or two to do steps two through four. I have so much to define for step two. Step three will require some research. Step four is going to be a learning experience in itself. I currently am not doing anything like that. Step four probably needs to be my next step so I have a "Place". If anybody can talk with me about step four that would be great.
