From here, you can sort through more than 200 courses that people have used to facilitate learning circles in the past. You can sort by popularity and community ranking, and search by topic.
If you can’t find something on the P2PU site, try an aggregator or search engine that looks at courses across multiple platforms. Some of our favorite places to search for new courses are:
