Being a member of a group gives you special access to the features and content on your group's pages. As a group member, you will be able to:
Access the group from My Groups in My Curriki
Send messages to the group using the Messages tab
Create curriculum collections for this group
See any curriculum resources that are only viewable by group members
For closed groups, see other members of the group
Invite other Curriki members to join the group
Edit personal settings for the group from the Members list on the Members tab
Anyone who is a Curriki member is eligible to become a member of a group. You may want to watch the How to Join a Group video tutorial to get a visual presentation of these methods.
There are several ways to start participating in a group, depending on what type of membership policy that group has (open or closed) and can be summarized as follows:
1) Join an Open Group
Any Curriki member can join an open group.
If a group is open, you will see the "Join This Group" button on the Home and Members tabs for that group.
Click the button. You'll be asked to complete and submit a short form (see details below). Once you click "Join," you are a member of the group.
2) Be Invited to Join an Open or Closed Group
Any Curriki member can be invited to join a group by another member or the leader of that group. Group leaders are able to view any pending invitations on the Members tab.
Invitations are currently sent as emails to the invited member's registered email address for their Curriki account. Inside the email is a link to click in order to proceed in joining the group.
If you receive an invitation, the link in the email will take you to the form on Curriki that will enable you to become a member of the group (see details below). Once you complete and submit that form, you are a member.
3) Request Membership in a Closed Group
If a group is closed, a Curriki member must complete a membership request, and can only join after they have been accepted into the group by one of the group leaders.
The "Request Membership" button on the Home tab for a closed group will bring the potential group member to a form where s/he can enter biographical information and describe why s/he would make a good contributor/participant in this closed group (see details below).
Group leaders can review and react to pending membership requests on the Members tab.
You will receive an email notification once the group leader has accepted your request, then you can visit and participate in the group at any time.
During the process of joining a group, you are asked a few more details about yourself in the “Join This Group” form. The form asks you to:
Fill in a short bio that will appear on the member’s tab.
Select the role(s) you plan to fill for the group. For more information, see the Group Roles section of the Help Collection.
Check your group notification settings.
This information is collected about you for each group that you join, in case you’d like to be an active contributor for one group and an observer for another. You will be able to change these settings at any time by returning to the group’s Members tab and editing your information.
