You can view our public communities by clicking on the Discover Communities link in the top bar of your Home Feed

Communities in which you are already a member will appear on the right-hand side, under Your Communities. Open, public communities that are available for you to join will appear in the center of the Discover Communities page. You can scroll through to browse each community, or search by keyword or by category.

When you find a community that you'd like to engage with, locate and click on the [Join Community] button on the community main page to become a member.

Once you've joined a community, you can contribute to discussions and start building connections with facilitators and fellow educators! You'll know you are a member of a community when the button says [You're a Member].

If you decide later that you would like to leave a community, you revisit the community main page from your Communities link on your Home Feed. Click [Visit Community]. To remove yourself from a community, click on the [You're a Member] button. You will now see an option to [Leave Community]

Once you click on the [Leave Community] button, you will no longer receive announcement notifications for this community, and you will not be able to post to discussions. Any previous discussions, comments or replies you have posted will still be visible in the discussion. You will stay enrolled in any courses you accessed from the community, and you will be able to access resources in that community. 

If you are a member of one of our Global Schools, then your school administrator has provided your information to Participate and you are already a member of your school community. Educators in Global Schools communities cannot leave the community on their own, but if you need assistance with your community membership, you can always contact our Support Team for help.

*If you have questions or need assistance, contact our Support Team at or use the chat icon on the bottom-right corner of any page.
