I’m not comfortable sharing all of my work publicly. Are there ‘private’ forums where I can interact only with instructors and other students?


We understand that it can be daunting to share your work publicly. However, this provides you a unique opportunity to network online with other students and to develop your social media skills and digital online history. These are beneficial skills for future employment! Most OERu courses require that you publish selected activities publicly to support your learning process, but you remain the arbiter of what you publish online. The OERu does not provide ‘private’ forums, but you will be able to communicate privately with other students who share their email addresses.
