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 of users may be subscribed to Pathways
Manually, through a Pathways account.
Automatically, through a Learning Management System (LMS) LTI app.
You must create and publish a Learning Pathway prior to subscribing, creating and/or adding groups.
My Pathways is for learners. This is where they access pathways they subscribe to. My Issuers is for pathway authors and program administrators. This is where users can create and manage pathways.

Select "Create your first group now" or "Manage Groups."

Creating groups automatically through the Badgr Pathways LTI App in an LMS
When an Issuer creates a pathway LTI and places it in an LMS course, any student that clicks or access the pathway in the course is automatically added to a group and subscribed to a pathway. Each new LTI creates a different group of subscribers.
