Communities are groups of people with similar activities or interests ; they can have their membership set such as all students, students in a program, etc., be open for members to join such as the Athletics community, or even be private. Depending on the community, its members can receive announcements (news), access documents, pictures, bookmarks, calendar of events, and participate in forum discussions.
Examples of communities are Athletics and Students.
Your communities are shown on the right-hand side of the home page. To view a community, click on it. To become a member of a community (such as athletics) choose Directory of Communities. This will show all public communities, and give you an option to join when selected.
When you are a member, the news and the events from the community will be shown on your home page.
