Cochrane Crowd ( is a crowdsourcing platform where contributors can dive into needed tasks aimed at helping to identify and describe health evidence. Many of the tasks interactive training module accompanies every task. People often learn best by doing. Cochrane Classmate enables people to use the Cochrane Crowd tasks for their groups of students.

This webinar will cover the basics of how to use Classmate, as well as describe how to invite groups to participate in the three main learning modules available on Crowd (Key Concepts, Understanding Study Designs, and Introduction to CONSORT), as well as the ability to set up ‘pathways’ (a set collection of tasks and activities) for students using Classmate.
