TalentLMS lets you organize your users in groups and assign one or more courses to all group members with a single click.
To create your first group, follow these steps:
1. Sign in to your TalentLMS account as Administrator, go to Home > Groups, and click Add group (1).
|Note: Instructors can also access groups from their dashboard.|
2. Type a distinct Name (2) (e.g., Startup courses) and a Description (3) for your new group.
3. If you want users to register themselves to the group, simply click Group key to generate a self-registration key (4). Then, send the Group key to users along with the simple instructions on how to self-register. (You’ll find instructions at the end of this article.)
|Note: You can replace the generated key by typing your own key in the Group key field.|
4. If you want to sell courses associated with the group as a course bundle, click Price (5) and type your preferred amount.
|Note: When you set a price for the group’s courses, they are automatically listed in the Bundles section on the course catalog.|
5. Click Add group to complete the process.
6. After the new group has been added, you’re automatically taken to the Users tab on the group page. To add a user to your group, just click the respective add symbol (6) in the Options column.
|Note: If you have sent a Group key to the users you want in the group, there’s no need to add them manually.|
7. Go to the Courses tab to choose which courses the group members can access. To assign a course to your group, just click the respective add symbol (7) in the Options column.
8. Return to the Users tab to assign the selected courses to group members.
- To assign all courses to a specific user, click the respective add symbol (8) on the Synchronize users with courses column.
- To assign the courses to all group members at once, click Mass actions and choose Enroll users in group courses (9).
|Note: If you need to unassign group courses from all members with one click, you can return to Mass actions and choose Unenroll users from group courses (10).|
