This is the P2PU Archive. If you want the current site, go to!

Update (19 May 2011) - Moving to new site: P2PU is in the process of moving to a new site. The link below will take you to our new online home, where you are free to create a draft course or study group.

Before you create a Draft Course, here are a couple of things you might need to know.

P2PU is a little different

P2PU is different from a traditional university. Our core values are openness, community and peer learning - and they inform everything we do.

Starting a learning project with P2PU requires some work and responsibilities:
  • setting expectations for the group: what is your experience level, how much time will the project take, what are participants expected to bring to the table?
  • managing the sign-up process, reviewing applications, and communicating with applicants,
  • initiating introductions and discussions,
  • scheduling and hosting meetings,
  • tracking the overall progress, and reflecting on improvements.
