Course groups in Pluto LMS are a feature that allows for the organization and management of students or learners within a course.
Overall, course groups in an LMS are a valuable feature for organizing and managing learners in a way that enhances collaboration, customization of content, and individualized learning experiences within a larger course structure. They are particularly useful in scenarios where learners are divided into smaller cohorts or teams for various purposes, such as projects, discussions, or department-specific training.
USE CASE EXAMPLE:
