What is a Cohort?
A cohort is a group that you can create and moderate apart from the main training group that everyone is a part of. In this group, the training experience is exactly the same, except that you can only interact with others in the group that you have invited.
We encourage small groups, discipleship groups, or churches to create a cohort for your group. By taking advantage of this resource, you can walk through the course with your group only, discuss questions among yourselves, and even track the progress of each learner as their "teacher." Cohort leaders have the opportunity to send messages to their learners all at once without notifying anyone outside of the group that may be learning alongside Love Worth Finding.
How Do I Create and Use a Cohort?
At this time, the Love Worth Finding team can create your cohort for you. Simply contact us and let us know that you would like to start a group. We will send you a link to use to sign up and share it with others.
- At the top of your cohort, there will be a button to invite others to the course. You can choose what role each person has in the course: learner, moderator, or teacher.
- You will have the option to choose between Learn mode and Teach mode as you work through the course. In Learn mode, you can experience the course as your learners are experiencing it. In Teach mode, you can only interact with learners, so you will not see everything they are seeing.
- When you select "Options" as a Learner, you can view your performance and your notes.
- When you select "Options" as a Teacher, you can see a list of the learners in your cohort, send a message to all of your learners, view the statistics of everyone's performance for the course, and review who has completed the course and who hasn't.
- In each module, you can add notes just like a learner. You can also schedule parts of the course for your learners, either preventing them from working ahead or in order to give them a due date for a particular section.
- You can also start your own discussions as a teacher by posting your own discussion questions in addition to what was initially offered. The prompt to post new discussion questions is only presented to teachers/moderators.
