P2PU has two thinks being announced this week. The first is the Learning Circle Course Creation Guide. Learning circles are "free, facilitated study groups for people who want to learn together. Guided by the principles of peer learning, learning circles offer much of the structure and community of formal education without the barriers to access." This guide is available through Google Docs. It offers suggestions for creating and publishing your learning circle course (including, but not limited to, Course-in-a-Box). See also: the P2PU Learning Circles Handbook.
