DHPE's new site includes Online Groups. These groups are for those who have a similar interest in something. You can get to know one another, contribute to a conversation, share your thoughts, learn from others, and feel free to stay awhile. There is a DHPE members-only group, public groups, and private working groups.
To see/enter a group you are a member of, select "Groups" on the right-hand side under MY PROFILE to view groups you belong to. DHPE members automatically are required to select the members-only group as their primary group upon joining or renewing.
Your Primary Group is the group at the top of your group list. Change by selecting the group at the bottom.
Select a group name.
JOIN A GROUP
On the left-hand navigation, mouse-over Networking and select Online Groups. Click on the type of group you'd like to join to see the listings within. Select the group name and select Join Group at the top. Restricted groups will give a note that they require invitation to join.
Tools that are available within a group depend on the rights assigned by DHPE and/or group administrators. Different groups have different options. Below are the standard tools.
