Think of Groups as classrooms for your digital university.
This article covers:
The different between public and private groups occurs at the content creation level:
- If you invite both public and private groups to the same program, learners from all public groups will see forum activity
- Learners from private groups will only see their own forum activity (and only they will see it).
In other words, private groups are completely compartmentalized: learners can only see interaction and activity from members of the private group.
You designate the status during the group creation phase. You can change this setting at any time.

- If a learner is in a public group, they will see learners that are in public groups and interactions between members of public groups in the forum.
- If a learner is in a private group, they’ll only see learners and interactions between members of the private group.
- If a learner doesn’t belong to a group, they’ll see members and interactions from members in public groups.
