The Open Prepr Platform is the means of delivering educational content and connecting learners. It’s structure mimics social networking sites like facebook with profiles, dashboards (walls) and groups.
Your profile is like your online resume. It is an education portfolio that showcases your skills and knowledge, and highlights your interests and experience. It also helps you connect with other learners. But how much you share, and who you share it with, is up to you.
Your dashboard gives you control of your learning by coordinating incoming learning resources and tracking your progress. Educational resources from friends and groups streams into it, providing ideas and stimulating thought. It also helps you track your progress via charts and other infographics.
The groups are where collaboration happens, and your portal to related content. The content includes articles, images and videos and is associated to groups based on relevancy. From skill groups to subject groups to test groups there are many different way to connect with content and other learners. You create your learning environment based on what matters most to you.
