This grouping functionality is going to be especially useful if you have an open or public academy. Read more about academy access privacy read here.

If you have in mind different groups you would like to assign the academy visitors to while they are browsing your academy and its content, you can activate a dropdown menu with the groups in the top right corner of the Home page.

To do that, go to Admin -> Groups, then tick the box 'Show groups in a dropdown list on the Home page for visitors', and Save the changes.

For all the visitors on the Home page, there will be a dropdown list containing all the Groups that are set visible in the Admin. In the picture, there are 4 visible groups (Finnish, Spanish, English, Swedish).

In this use case, we want to segment all the academy visitors and assign them to the content in the relevant language. For example, when visitors enter the Home page, they can choose which group they want to be associated with (in our use case, which language they prefer), and they will see only the content associated with this group. There could be other use cases relevant to your goals.

But how to assign a group to a particular course? As this type of grouping is available only for open and public academies, and in our use case we want to provide visitors (not signed-up users) with the content, we need to go to the course settings (Course page -> Edit -> Settings -> Settings), assign a particular group(s) to this course, and set the privacy settings to 'Anyone with the link'.

The course with these settings in the picture is going to be available for any academy visitor who will choose 'Spanish' from the dropdown menu on the Home page.

If you have any questions, please, reach out to us via email: [email protected]. We'll be more than happy to help.
