Build a user community around your project

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:

Interested in setting up something for your project?
There are several 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 visual face 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 Jeremy Wojdak.
