Groups & Cohorts

Updated on July 4, 2023

Creating Your First Group

Creating your first group of students can be done from your dashboard in WP Admin. Head to Sensei LMS, then follow these steps:

  1. Find the Sensei LMS menu in your dashboard and click “Groups”.
  2. Click “New Group”
  3. Click the “Group Name” field and give your group a name.
  4. Click “Create Group”

Create Cohorts and Access Periods

1. Click the group name you want to turn into a cohort.

2. Click “Cohorts and Access Period”

3. Assign courses to the cohort.

If they are not already, students in the cohort will be automatically enrolled in the course(s) listed.

4. Click “Start Access Period”.

This is optional, only if you want to set a date that course access begins.

5. Choose the start date.

Choose the date that access to the course should begin. This will happen around 12:01 am in the main timezone of the site as shown in Settings > General.

6. Click “End Access Period”.

This is optional, only if you want to choose a date that the course access ends.

7. Select the end date.

Add Students to a Group or Cohort

1. Click “Group Students”

2. Click “Add Students”.

3. Search for students to add

Students must already have logins on the website to be added. You can create users and add them to a group if needed. You can read more on our Student Management documentation page.

4. Click “Add to Group”.

Note: your students won’t see and know whether they’re added to a group or a cohort. They also don’t see other cohorts on their end; it’ll look the same as enrolling in any other course. If you want to know how the course looks like from a student perspective, you can use the Preview as a Student feature.
