GitHub Education now provides a safe place for students to take the first step in their open source journey with the launch of Community Exchange on GitHub Global Campus. Community Exchange offers students the ability to connect with peers to learn valuable skills to contribute to open source.
With Community Exchange, users can discover student created repositories and even submit a repository of their own. By submitting a repository a student can:
- Get exposure for their repository by the nearly two million students on Global Campus
- Build their portfolio by maintaining or contributing to repositories
- Help other students learn
- Grow their network
Community Exchange is available to all Global Campus students on their Global Campus dashboard. Students who haven't joined Global Campus can apply for GitHub Global Campus benefits.
