Create a group

  • Updated

Groups are useful in three typical cases:

  1. share courses, sessions and paths to a set of users (instead of individually to each Learner);
  2. track statistics per group;
  3. create a community where people can help each other.

There are two privacy settings for groups:

  • Public: anyone who is a member of the platform group can see who is in the group and what they post;
  • Private: only members can see who is in the group and what they post.
