How it work
The benefits

Cochrane Crowd has enabled thousands of people interested in healthcare to come together and help identify health evidence. Many within the community have found the tasks a great way to learn.

Classmate enables you to use the Cochrane Crowd tasks as learning activities. As your students learn, they’ll also be helping Cochrane continue to identify health evidence.

Classmate can be used for a variety of learning settings: traditional classroom environments, as distance or virtual learning activities, as part of a workshop or event, as part of a fundraiser, and much more.

It’s simple to use. There are three main steps:


Select your learning activity
