P2PU in June

Welcome to the P2PU (mostly) monthly update. This is our way of filling you  in on all the news about our site development, new study groups and courses, and general P2PU news from the month of June.

We’ve moved!
The move to our wonderful new site p2pu.org took place last week, and it couldn’t have been smoother. Many thanks and mad props to the wonderful dev  team and everyone who gave their time and smarts to making this happen.

  • If you have any questions about how to create, run, join or participate in a study group or course on the new site, check out our brilliant handbook and Help Desk <http://p2pu.org/en/groups/p2pu-help-desk/>*
