Once you have created a group, you may begin adding group members. Members of a group are able to add, share and create educational resources. Group members can create and save content in folders, view draft and pending resources added by other group members, and participate in group discussions.

Note: You must be a group administrator to invite others to join the group.

Select your group

  1. Login to OER Commons
  2. Click your name on the primary navigation menu in the header and select My Groups from the drop-down menu.
  3. Select the Group to which you want to add members.

Open the Manage Members page

  1. Select Members in the group navigation bar
  2. Select Manage Members.
  3. To invite members, add their email address or addresses (separated by comma).
  4. Then select Send Invitations.
  5. Your members will receive an email inviting them to accept your invitation and to create an account on OER Commons if they do not have one already.
