From conversations with our customers, we increasingly heard that there is a need for an extra ‘level’ within the group of learners in a course. In practice, a course sometimes consists of a collection of multiple classes, groups or similar concepts. Learners within these concepts even tend to change from one to the other. This is why it seems logical to manage these concepts from within aNewSpring, we call them learner groups.
After the release, you will be able to link instructors to learner groups. These learner groups can serve as the mentioned concepts, like classes or groups. Learners in these groups will be automatically linked to the linked instructors, and unlinked when they are moved out of a learner group. It works kind of the same as linking learners to instructors. Instructors will only see the learners that are in groups they are linked to.
Instructors can also filter on these learner groups. This way you can, for example, send group A a different message then group B. These groups and links can be edited freely, even after publishing.
