How to use DCE

  1. See what's on the site. You can view all the events, jobs, resources, or people by clicking the corresponding links above. You can also narrow what you see by choosing one of the focus filters: Learning, Practice, Research, and Teaching. 
  2. Create an account. To create an account, just click the 'Create a new account' button on the left and follow the directions. Once you have created an account, you will be able to post comments, join discussions, and add your own material to the site. 
  3. Comment on posts. To add a comment on comment-enabled posts, click the 'Add a new comment' link below a post, type your comment in the box, and click 'Save'.
  4. Add your own posts. Once you're a member of the site, you can add your own events, jobs, resources, and groups. Just click the corresponding 'Add' links above and follow the directions to create your post.
  5. Join a group. You can join one of the existing open groups during your sign up process, or at any time after you become a member. You can view all of the open groups by clicking the 'View groups' button under 'People' above. Open groups will allow you to join right away by clicking the 'Join' link on the Groups page.
  6. Create a group. If you have your own digital curation group, and you would like to organize your members in this space, you can create a public or private group. To do this, click the 'Create group' button under 'People' above and follow the directions.
  7. Post to your group spaces. You can post to your groups in two ways: 1. When you are in your group space, you will see a box with your group name and several links to create different types of content. Use any of these links to add material to your group, and 2. When you create a blog post, you may click the 'Groups' link under the body box and select the group(s) in which you would like the post to appear. If you are posting to a private group, always make sure that the appropriate group is selected and the 'Public' box is not checked.
