We're excited to announce a free course for Ning Network Creators developed in collaboration with FeverBee, a top community management consultancy. In the course, you'll learn the skills, knowledge, and resources to build a thriving community.

This self-paced course, which contains 10 lessons, covers the objectives of a community, understanding your audience, recruiting your first members, creating thriving discussions, developing content and facilitating exciting events. At the end of each lesson, you'll find a list of specific action points. These are elements that you can directly apply to your community efforts.

We're really excited about the addition of this resource for Ning Network Creators. Ning prides itself on being the home for social innovators who want to create online communities of people with similar interests or passions. We make it easy to get your community up and running quickly. The FeverBee Community Management Course for Ning will help you along the next steps: finding people who will love your community, building a welcome plan designed to turn new members into regulars, finding and creating content that will engage your community, and nurturing the relationships that make things happen in your community. 

With lessons, templates, actionable elements, and other resources, the amount of information and guidance you'll receive from this course is invaluable - and it's all free to Ning customers. We're rolling out access slowly and Ning 3.0 customers will get the first crack at it to help build their newly created communities.
