The XR HUB:

The Hub is the central point from which XR chats, plans, discusses, stores and writes.

To use the Hub you'll need to be invited by an existing admin.

There are three main componants: MatterMost, The Forum and The XR Cloud and it is the portal for several other systems too.

You'll find there are regular Training Events for the Hub as well as a Rebel Academy course and several videos - and some guidance here in the Rebel Toolkit too: The Hub.

XR UK Hub The starting point for all the other resources
MatterMost Where XR chats and does its day-to-day organising
XR UK Forum Where more formal discussions take place and projects are developed
