Within a course, you may join as many groups as you wish. You can discover the various groups created from the Groups Directory page and select your desired groups based on interest, industry, or geographical location. To visit the Group Directory page, you can select the (...) icon and select "Groups".
Do note, "Groups" may be titled differently in your course (i.e. Cohorts, Learning Circles, etc.)
Once on the Group Directory page, by default you will view "All groups". To view "Groups you can join", make sure to select this in the dropdown in the top left.
Here you can view all open groups and learn more about their focus topic.
By clicking on the Group Name, you will be directed to their Group Profile page where you can "Request to Join" with the button below.
You will be prompting to write a personal message explaining why you would like to join the selected group and you should hear back from the Group Lead shortly.
