This course will become read-only in the near future. Tell us at if that is a problem.

Full Description

The Help Desk is a place to:

• discuss P2PU's peer learning platform and it's differences from formal/traditional environments

• seek guidance on the various ways to design study groups, from basic collaborative research done by peers to groups led by experts, like traditional courses

• seek guidance on how to use external meeting tools for your study group (skype, video/voice conference, etc)

• seek feedback for study group ideas and tasks


Who runs the Help Desk?

Hopefully everyone involved! But Alison Cole is the main facilitator of the space. You can contact her at anytime with any questions you have.

Our content is open so that everyone can use it. Our model and technology are open to enable experimentation and ongoing improvement. And our processes are open so that we are accountable to our community.

P2PU is a community: P2PU is a community-centric project and our governance model reflects that. P2PU is driven by volunteers, who are involved in all aspects of the project.
