Getting Started on ASEEES Commons
1. Complete your profile. Once you're logged in, edit your profile and add relevant information to it by clicking on your name and avatar at the top right-hand corner of any Commons page. Add a photo and help others recognize you the next time you’re at a conference together. Enter academic interests, link to your Web site, Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn profile, and add other information about yourself.
2. Join and create groups. Search for and join groups that share your professional interests. If you have a special project or problem on which you want to collaborate with other Commons members, click Create Group to make your own group. Groups can be public, private, or hidden, but in any case you'll have access to group discussion boards with e-mail notifications, file sharing, and collaborative documents. Also, be sure to join the ASEEES Announcements Group so that you can receive announcements on great resources in the field.
3. View and create sites. Look at the site directory and click Create Site to add your own. You can use sites to share information about your scholarship, boost your online presence, or to get feedback on a book or dissertation in progress. Alternatively, make a digital companion to your latest book, with images, audio and video files, and regular updates connecting your work to the world. Teaching or coediting a volume? Create a group Web site or blog where you can work collaboratively with others. By default, sites on the Commons are open to anyone, but you can restrict yours to its contributors or Commons members if you prefer.
7. Make connections. Find and follow members so you can keep up with their research, teaching, and professional projects, and send them a message or mention them using their username when you post an update.
8. Share your work. Deposit a copy of your scholarly and pedagogical materials in our interdisciplinary repository, CORE — whether it’s a published paper, a syllabus, a blog post, an interview, a work in progress, or a data set, CORE allows you to preserve and share all types of scholarly communication. You can even upload image, audio, or video files. CORE content is open to the world, so make sure you write an enticing summary, enter complete information, and tag your deposits to make them easily discoverable!
