In this article, we’ll present all LearnWorlds tools that will assist your communication with your users.




Community


Your school is already a community. Why don’t you create an interface for users to socialize?

Admins and students are able to create posts and comments that can be also commented on, starred (“yeah”), or highlighted as the best (“best of”)

Your posts can include a URL, an image, or even a poll to feel the pulse of your learners’ community and more about their interests and personalities.

For the optimal management of your school’s community, you may remove inappropriate posts.

You may also check a relevant article on Community and its settings here. 


Groups


Within the community, you may create groups according to users’ interests, courses’ enrollments, or even hobbies!

Click on Create Group:

select a relevant group name

And invite users to join.


Users will receive an email notification as well as an inbox message in their school’s account.

Note: As an admin, in case a community user or a group member shares a post while you are logged out, you will be notified with an email and in the community page with the number of the new posts, while users will be notified only if they are members of the group.


You can learn more about community Groups, by clicking here.


Discuss tab


Depending on your school’s social settings you may enable Course Discussion groups for each course or for each course’s learning unit.


You can also allow the course discussion content to be published in the Community, allowing anyone to comment on posts.

The course discussion tab is not only a socializing tool within your school’s community, it can also become a strong tutoring tool as it allows instructors to answer questions and exchange ideas within the course class.


You may find more information on Course discussion groups in this article.
