Hosting Your Project on QUBES
Many excellent educational projects exist as lonely islands adrift on the web. Users find the sites haphazardly, and often forget where they've found good content, never to return. QUBESHub offers the chance to plug your project into a vibrant community of users that are regularly returning to discuss, collaborate, interact, and find new ideas. Moreover, the rich functional infrastructure of the hub means it is easy to develop sites where users can share files, have threaded discussions, collaboratively write documents, and much more.
Here is an example of a project linked to QUBESHub, with some advantages highlighted:

Sometimes you just need a place to work. Many of our partner projects have three types of groups. The public page where they are disseminating information, Faculty Mentoring Networks (FMNs) where faculty are working on projects, and private workgroups where the leadership or committees collaborate. See the NIBLSE Resource Review Committee page for example.
Interested in using QUBESHub for your project? There are two options:
The easiest option is to create a standard QUBESHub group. You can enroll members, share resources, collaborate on assessments or adaptations of your work, and add your own logos. Here is an example of a typical group, in terms of its interface and functionality. You can start your own group anytime, for projects big and small.
The fancier option is to create a "supergroup", which is what is depicted above for the AIMS project. This requires just a little help from the QUBES team, but ultimately gives you more visual and functional flexibility. Contact Elia Crisucci.
