Since we last spoke, your peers have created more than 65 new courses on P2PU. We’d like to share with you our top picks of what your peers have to offer!
In addition to new offerings, we’ve been putting in the hours to help your peers design better courses. We’ve created a space for peers to design badges, too. Most of the community is currently in Berlin where they’re hacking their way towards a better UX and designing schools of the future, like School of Data and School of Open.

P2PU is a lab for the future of learning. Our community members design free courses, use open learning materials and collaboratively build our open platform. You can find a P2PU community member on every non-polar continent, and visit the site in 5 languages. Our community is open and volunteer driven. Involvement starts with participating in courses and moves deeper into designing courses, working on site development and influencing governance choices for the community.
About Courses & Challenges
There are no limitations to the subjects that can be learned at P2PU. You’ll find schools focused on the future of web development, mathematics, big data, and education. You’ll find a multitude of courses and challenges for subjects you didn’t even know you could master – like accounting jargon, conspiracy theory, open mapping and poetic thinking. For learners, the P2PU experience is not like any other. Though self-direction is needed, collaboration is key. Work is peer assessed and credit is given in the form of badges – emblems of accomplishment that you can carry across the web. Badges are designed by the community and given by peers. Courses are improved by the peers who take them, and can be remixed and remastered by anyone.
At P2PU we believe everyone has something to offer. Come learn from our amazing community, and in turn let us learn from you! We are not just a platform, we are a community driven to redefine and expand how we learn and who we learn with.
