Our groups area is where you can link up with people studying the same subject, on the same course, living in the same area, with the same interests - or any other point of connection you choose. We suggest you take a look around first to see which groups area already live on Platform. You can join as many as you wish, and once you're a member, and are logged into Platform, you can contribute news, ideas, links, leads; comment on other members' posts; create and vote in polls, start discussion theads and tell each other about events.
You can also set up your own group if your course, hobby or other area of interest isn't covered (remember to add it to one of te subject or interest categories available so that others can find it!). It's then up to you as administrator of the group to decide whether you want to share the running of the group with all its members or manage its smooth-running yourself or with a few others.
Common sense will almost certainly see you through but as with all other areas of this site, and other OU sites, we need to mention the small print: anything you do here is governed by usual OU computing code of conduct and associated terms and conditions.
