This week, our free virtual summer camp kicked off with its first challenge: profiles.

Led by “head counselor” Caitlin Duffy, this program will suggest a challenge every two weeks to encourage participants to explore the Commons and develop their online identity:

HC Summer Camp will give you deadlines and guidance to help you achieve your ideal digital presence.

“Campers” will be encouraged to complete a challenge every other week. For example, our first challenge will be focused on the Humanities Commons profile page. To complete Challenge #1, campers will either create a Humanities Commons profile or improve and update their pre-existing HC profile. Please see the bottom of this post to see our schedule and challenges.

Read more on the HC Summer Camp site, and join the group, where lively discussion is already underway!
