How to Create a Community of Practice

This article outlines the process for site owners and site administrators to create a Community of Practice (CoP).

How to create a Community of Practice

  1. Click on the admin tools gear icon on the top right of any page.
  2. On the next screen, click Communities on the left panel.
  3. Next, click + Create Community on the top right of the page.
  4. Enter a name for your community. Tip: When choosing the community name, keep in mind all of the learners that will be in the community in the short and long term, as well as what it is that connects them to the community. Try to stay away from names containing the month or year of a program because you may decide to add another cohort and/or course to the community at a later date.
  5. Choose the position for your community. Position simply refers to where the community is located in the list of Communities when someone hovers over Communities in the site header. 
  6. Enable Toolkit should be checked by default. Leave the checkbox checked and click Save at the bottom of the page.

You will then be taken to the community Configure page, where you can update the community digest email frequency and upload banner images.
