Peer 2 Peer University creates collaborative, community-driven, authentic learning experiences on the web (vs. tutorials, multiple choice, or "right answers"). Over the course of 5 years, we've experimented widely with badges, voting interfaces, forums, cohorts, video meetups, feedback mechanisms and virtual sprints. We've spread our approach to peer learning design with Mozilla, GovLab, Creative Commons, the MIT Media Lab and NYU.

Along the way, we've developed tools to enable social learning *around* open content, and we've put together some best practices on what works in this new era of open. This session will walk through our suite of support in helping other folks get started building communities on the web. We'll walk through our open learning toolkit, called "School in a Box," which will cover:
How to bootstrap learning communities on the web
Nurturing creative serendipity in small groups
How to use GitHub pages + Jekyll + Discourse to offer an open course
Peer learning principles and co-design practices
Defining success and iterating on your course design
We'll show you a bit of what these principles look like in action.

Support / Collaborator Community
P2PU is a community of edutinkerers, and the close of the session will discuss how to receive peer support for your open learning project, and how the P2PU community can help bring your social learning idea to fruition.
