  1. Would you like to have your name added to our Peer Collaborator Group? Sometimes, when we are learning something we just want to see who might be available to try it out without waiting for a scheduled meeting. That is where we come along. When you want help, you email members of the group to ask anyone available to join you for a Google Meet. We aren't always available, and that is to be expected, but if we can hop onto a chat and try out a link for 15 minutes, that can go a long way towards helping each other out.
    Yes
    No
