Version 1.1 - Your Feedback helped shape our site


Many thanks to so many of our colleagues and visionaries who shared feedback with us over the past few weeks to help us improve Huddle Up.

We're thrilled to say we just released version 1.1 and added the following improvements.

  1. Streamline the "Join a Project" process. (It's now a one-click experience)
  2. Adding a customizable rubric so that Project Leaders can foster peer evaluation by editing the criteria and descriptors.
  3. Minimizing text and adding video submissions.
  4. User notifications to alert each participant of incoming feedback or direct messages.
  5. A revised Project Homepage to track progress of the cohort collectively, and strengthen each team member's accountability.
  6. A Sandbox Project is added to each new user's Dashboard allowing exploration of the platform. 

We've created two videos to give you a glimpse of our new release for 2022.

Huddle Up: Overview



  New Site Navigation Overview


Each newly registered Huddle Up user will be greeted with a personal Dashboard that includes a Huddle Up Sandbox Project.  The Sandbox Project allows each user to become familiar with the platform (in the role of a Participant, not a Project Leader). Two of the key videos from the Sandbox Project are included below but the interactive experience can only be shown once you login and participate. Registration is quick and free.

The Evolution of Online Learning: Four Stages and What's Next?

The pandemic has made everyone far more knowledgeable about online learning platforms than they were 24 months ago. We each know (and feel) the strengths and the limitations of more than a few platforms.  We each have a long and growing list of features we want to see in the next evolution of online learning.  So, it seems a rather good time to step back and explore the evolution of online learning - to see how far we've come, and where we might be heading. One of the best resources out there is a simple progression chart shared in this intriguing article by Tiago Forte. The Future of Education is Community: The Rise of Cohort-Based Courses The evolution of online learning: What's next? We love big-picture reflections like this. While we are all aware of the current disconnect that still exists between the reality of our online learning platforms and the skills and knowledge we want to transfer to learners, we can all agree that the evolution above represents some significant a

Transforming The Way Cohorts Collaborate and Learn

Recently, our Huddle Up team has been having a debate about the cohorts we serve. One Platform: Resources. Ideas. Feedback. Data. Do we strive to transform the way online cohorts collaborate and learn? Or, to transform the way cohorts collaborate and learn?  In short, does the interaction and data shared within Huddle Up's platform allow cohorts to have more productive virtual and face-to-face meetings? We'd like to think "yes". But ultimately, time (and data!) will tell -  as Project Leaders continue to find innovate use-cases. In the last few weeks, we've created a few helpful videos to showcase the Huddle Up model. We hope they shed light on the big potential we see for how to help cohorts be more connected, engaged, and accountable to each other by focusing on ideas and feedback.

3 Questions to Plan Engaging Interactive Experiences

 We recently received a great question from a Project Leader. (Thanks Mike.) How can I set up the most effective Huddle Up Project?   He had recently read an earlier post we shared entitled Engagement is the key... an how to get it . In essence, there was some disconnect between that post and the ideas were were discussing. The question was a great one because we were talking about related - but different - environments.  The earlier post referred to all online activities while our tips were specific to creating an engaging Huddle Up Challenge - the backbone of the Huddle Up Project. So, we decided to share a post to show the relationship between the lists.  Helpful Tips Below, we've shared some videos and examples to add more context.  Care for some examples? Lastly, it's always helpful to see a few examples of Challenges in the context of our three questions. To what degree will this challenge allow each learner to create a unique solution? Will learners benefit from seeing
