Hello everyone. My name is Jelena and I come from a little country Croatia. In the past I never really took some time to think about hunger in the World. I think that it is because in my country we do not have such big problems with it. One day I was on the Internet and suddenly saw a shocking fact. I read that the USA families throw away so much food that they could feed all Africa three times. In that moment my heart skipped a beat so I’m inviting you all to the UNICEF organization to help little kids to survive the hunger. Our English teacher and her pupils bake muffins every year to collect money. If you like the idea you should start something too and help the World of tomorrow.

WFP: World Food Programme has created a quiz that is funded by LG Electronics: “For every person who takes this short hunger quiz, a child will receive a warm meal thanks to an anonymous donor to WFP. Test your hunger IQ, then challenge your friends!”
If ever there was a online game to play this seems like a good one! It takes less than a minute!
What is the Einztein Social Learning Network?
Einztein is the social learning network for higher education and lifelong learners. We bring the power of social networking to learning and enable anyone to create an online learning community for resource sharing, collaboration and discussion. Teachers can easily turn courses into social learning experiences. Students can form online study groups to research and learn together. Institutions can engage learners around their educational content.
I want to invite friends to join Einztein, how do I do that?
To invite your friends to Einztein, select “Invite People” from the drop down menu of “Account” located in the top green bar. You have 25 invites. Enter your friend’s email addresses in the pop-up window and an invite email will be sent to them. Be sure to let your friend know about the invitation and to check that spam/junk folder, where it sometimes gets caught!
I am looking for the courses that were on the previous version of Einztein, where did they go?

How do I create a Discussion? A Learning Group?
Locate the “Create a Discussion” button, which can be found in the Post module, next to the “Discussions” listing on the right column of the screen, or on a learning group page under the description module. After selecting the button, simply enter a title for your discussion and any tags to help define the discussion. (Don’t forget to separate the tags with commas!) Finally, decide if you wish to make your discussion restricted. Making a discussion restricted means that all Einztein members can view the contents of the discussion, but only discussion members can post or comment on it. Users will have to “ask to join” your discussion if it is restricted. Don’t forget to add a discussion photo, description, and tags to help others find your discussion.
