Social learning platform

Participate communities combine the power of social networking groups with Learning Management Systems (LMS) in one collaboration space. Bring together your organization’s customer advocacy efforts and educational initiatives in a customizable, collaborative community.

Online courses

Create virtual training and blended learning experiences through self-paced online courses. Our e-learning structure allows you to create courses from scratch or using existing content. Easily embed media, connect with community members in learning checkpoints and monetize courses with our built-in e-commerce functionality. Each course is accompanied with a peer-reviewed micro-credential saved to a community member’s profile and easily shared via a micro-credential link. Read more about micro-credentials.

Organizations use virtual courses for workforce development, academic initiatives or educating constituents on how to best use your organization’s product or service.

Share updates with whom you want, when you want

Direct messaging

Have a quick question? Directly message members of your community or engage with other users on the Participate platform. Our direct messaging feature allows you to search and connect with users in effective, real-time communication.

Community announcements

Long gone are the tedious days of creating segmented email lists. Send announcements to your organization’s community or groups of users within your community on upcoming events, experiences and ways to get involved in your organization. Announcements appear on the community home feed and automatically send emails to community members.

Discussion threads

Unlike boring discussion forums, we’ve designed our discussion threads to be collaborative and easily embedded into learning experiences within your community. Starting a discussion thread takes seconds and can be tied to organization-wide projects, training courses, topics of interest or simply getting to know one another in the community. Embed media, tag users and subscribe to discussions for email updates so that you never miss a beat. Take a look at a discussion thread here.

Formative feedback

For one-on-one feedback and company advocate training, educational organizations leverage the formative feedback feature to learn alongside community members and interact at designated check-points in their community journeys. More than simply a space to request corrections, formative feedback allows community facilitators to engage in deeper dialogue that facilitates learning, deepens education initiatives and pushes a community member’s understanding.

Organization, simplified

Resource collections

Organize your organization’s educational resources, documents and media in online resource collections. Similar to any online cloud folder, resource collections house all of the links and descriptions you need in one, privacy-safe space. Collections can be hidden, public or private so that only members of the community or users of your choice can access them.

Participate Learning

For more than 30 years, Participate Learning has supported global education programs in schools across the country. To scale reach to their professional learning offerings and to connect their global educators in a collaborative environment, Participate Learning has several online learning communities. Participate Learning's community United We Teach is especially timely, as it provides resources, courses and discussions around remote teaching and learning due to coronavirus school closures. Because of their online communities with Participate, Participate Learning is able to provide collaborative community learning experiences for 1,000+ educators around the world.

Logics Academy

Logics Academy, a Canadian leader in STEM education, uses a Participate community to grow their educator base and train company ambassadors. Because many of the products Logics Academy provides are student-facing, Logics Academy was looking for an educator-facing engagement tool. The Logics Academy community is used to provide networking opportunities for teachers and administrators on STEM education, robotics and how to best implement Logics Academy student tools.
