How to Get Started
To create a group class, look for the “Take with Your Own Group” option under any Ligonier Connect course and select the “Create Group” button.
You’ll be asked first to sign-in or create an account.
If you are not a subscriber, you’ll be prompted to subscribe to Ligonier Connect. If you would like to subscribe for multiple people, you can do so at a discounted rate by creating a community subscription.
Next, type in a group name that your members will recognize (they’ll see this group name in addition to the course name when they register). The group name is required.
Free group access for subscribers
If you’re already a Ligonier Connect All Access subscriber or a member of a community group subscription, you can create or join a study group for no additional fee.
Where to Find Your Study Group Course
Once you create a study group, you’ll see a Teach tab as well as a Learn tab on your Home screen. Your Teach tab includes any courses that you’ve created to take with a group. As the group creator, you will have moderator access, which means you can view progress for all group members and moderate the discussions. You can also take the course as a learner by switching to “Learn” mode inside the course. You’ll find the “Learn/Teach” toggle button on the left side of the course Path.
📈Note: your progress is only tracked when you use Learn mode.
Invite people to your study group
Switch to “Teach” mode to send invitations. Tap on the “Invite” button at the top just above the word “Path.” From the Invite screen, enter your members’ email addresses. Optionally add a message, and then send the invites.
Or, click “Get shareable link” and copy the invitation link to your clipboard. Paste the link into an email or any other type of message and send it to the people you wish to invite.
When the person you invited clicks on the link, they’ll be prompted to login or create an account, and after signing in, they will be enrolled.
You can also use the “Invite an editor” button to invite additional moderators. Select “Edit Course Settings” (the gear icon in the upper right-hand corner), then scroll to “Editors.” This means they will have the same access as you, the group creator, to monitor other members’ progress and moderate the discussions.
