Discussions allow learners to the exchange ideas and build community. However, your community may also contain various cohorts, audiences and affinity groups. You may want to limit access to specific discussions.

As a community facilitator, designer, or learner you have the ability to create new discussions, which are visible only to specific groups in your community!

First, you will need to create one or more 'Groups' in your community. Click here to read more about how to create Groups.

Once you have at least one Group created, then (as a community facilitator) you can click on the [Manage Groups] menu option in your community to get started

Select the Group you want to create a discussion for by clicking on the Group name. You will now be taken to that Group's Dashboard. Here is an example of a Group Dashboard. Everything related to this Group can be found here:

To create a Group Discussion, click on the 'Discussions' menu item on the left-hand side. From there, you can create a discussion as you normally would for your community. Click here to read more about creating discussions.

Once you've created your Group discussion, we encourage you to copy the link and share with your Group members, by creating a Group Announcement. Watch the example below to see how easy it is to create a Group Announcement!
