Member-Only Community Overview

What are WCET Online Communities?MIX logo

MIX is WCET’s online community platform and email discussions where members*  can ask questions of thousands of higher education peers, stay updated on digital learning breaking news, participate in member-only events and experiences, and more. MIX provides members the opportunity to…

  • ask and answer questions to and from peers,
  • stay up to date on digital learning in higher education,
  • participate in the WCET community,
  • review archives on community building opportunities, and,
  • explore options for finding and using the archives of our wcetDISCUSS and wcetNEWS email lists,
  • access member-only resources on timely topics.

*Most MIX communities are reserved for WCET or SAN members. Some communities are reserved for working groups, event attendees, and other invitation-only groups.
