A community is closely linked to a Camp (= a group of users).
Here are the steps to follow to create a community:
1 - Go to the “I organise” interface.
2 - Select the “Camps” section in the sidebar.
3 - Click the Camps in which you want to create one or more communities.
4 - Once inside your Camp, click the “Communities” tab.
5 - Click the “Create a new community” button.
6 - Give it a name and you’re ready to go!
You have several options to configure the community:
Visible / Hidden:
Visible: we recommend that you choose this option so that your learners can access the community from the dashboard. The dashboard will appear below the “Communities” section in the left sidebar.
Hidden: this option may be useful if you want to use the community as a group of users (from an administrator point of view) to facilitate the distribution of a course.
Public / Private
Private: Only members invited by the administrator will be able to see the community in the left sidebar.
Public: The learners present in the Camp will be able to freely join the community
Other options are hidden behind the [...] at the end of the line!
A drop-down menu gives you access to the following options:
Invite a member
To add a member to the community, a drop-down menu appears. Select “Users” and then click the “Add a member” button. Choose the members you want to invite from the list by adding them via the “+” icon.
Add training content
If you want to make a training course available to a community, click “Content” and then the “Add content” button. Choose the content you want to add from the list via the “+” icon.
Make shared files available
The administrator can share documentation or media with the community. In the drop-down menu, click “Shared files” and then “+” to retrieve the media from your computer.
In this section, you can rename your community, customise the cover image (2000 x 400px), or add a welcome message.
