Programs & Cohorts (Collaborative Learning)

Provides a collaborative, classroom-like, online learning experience where learners can collaborate with each other and communicate with an instructor.

A cohort LO is a combination of a Connect community and a curriculum, where users can complete training within a curriculum structure and collaborate with other learners who are in the same cohort. This community contains all of the traditional community functionality, but also contains a Learning tab where users can view and complete training and an Instructor tab where instructors can engage with learners.

Within a cohort community, video LOs that use an uploaded video file are launched in a unique pop-up that enables cohort community members to view the video, comment on specific moments of the video, and view other cohort members' comments on the video. As users view a video LO, the user is able to add comments, ask questions, view other students' comments and questions, and view instructors' responses to student comments and questions. Note: The ability to view video LOs in a pop-up, add comments, and view comments is not available for video LOs that use a YouTube link.



Postings are user contribution to the Knowledge Bank or Connect. These postings could be a discussion, Q&A, online resource, white paper, presentation, or other document.

Postings may be placed in Topics for allowing users to find the information they need quickly.
