The Groups feature in Badgr Pathways is used to organize badge recipients into different segments or cohorts, so that they may be easily tracked along a Learning Pathway. Groups may be subscribed to more than one pathway and any number of groups can be subscribed to the same pathway.
Groups and Pathways are paid features of Badgr Pro. Contact our sales team for pricing.
- Manually, through a Badgr Pro account
- Automatically, through the placement of a custom Pathways LTI in a Learning Management System (LMS).
Creating Groups Manually through Badgr Pathways
You must first create a Group before it can be added to a published Pathway. Groups can only be created from the groups tab of an issuer's page.
Select the Badgr Icon in the upper left, then select your Organization from the drop-down menu. Select the issuer's tab from the top navigation bar.
Select an issuer with a published Pathway you would like to add a group to, or create a new Pathway and publish it. To learn more about creating pathways, view our article How to create and edit a Badgr Pathway
The Pathways menu is for learners. This is where they access pathways they subscribe to. The Issuers menu is for badging program administrators. This is where admins create and manage pathways.
3. Go to the Groups tab on the Issuer Details page.
4. Select the "Create Group" button.
If you switch a Space to a group, your learners will lose access to the space, and they will only have access to their subscribed pathways. Switching back may confuse your learners, especially if they have already made progress on objectives.
