Creating Learner Groups
Related: To learn more about what learner groups are and how they can be used, see What is a Learner Group? How Are They Used?
Navigate to the “Settings” tab of the Admin Portal. Select “Learner Group” from the settings column.
- Learner Group Name: In the text-entry box, type the name of the learner group you wish to add.
- Abbr. (Optional): All learner groups will appear as an abbreviation in many locations across the platform. If this box is left blank, the Rockstar Learning Platform will automatically assign each group an abbreviation based on the letters in the name of the learner group. However, if you wish to specify the abbreviation, add 2-4 characters (numbers, letters, or symbols) to the abbr. box.
- Expiration (Optional): Expiring a learner group is a great feature to use if you are offering a free trial or a demo. When the learner group expires, the learners’ access to content in that learner group is restricted. To add an expiration date, input the number of days until the learner group expires from the day the user is assigned to this learner group.
When you have filled out these fields, select the "Add New" button to create your learner group.
Edit or Delete a Learner Group
Navigate to the “Settings” tab of the Admin Portal and select “Learner Group” from the settings column. All learner groups will be displayed with their name, abbreviation, and expiration date.
Edit a Learner Group
To edit a learner group, select the edit icon next to the learner group name. Select the checkmark to confirm your changes or the “X” to cancel your edit.
Note: You can rename a learner group, change its abbreviation, or change its expiration date. These fields will automatically update across the platform without changing the learners or content associated with the group.
Delete a Learner Group
You can delete a learner group by selecting the trashcan icon next to the learner group name. Once selected, type “delete” in the textbox that appears and select the checkmark to confirm. Then select “Delete” in the popup window to permanently delete the learner group.
Caution: Once a learner group has been deleted, it cannot be undone. Deleted learner groups are removed from all learners and content across the platform.
Assigning/Removing Learner Groups to Modules:

To assign learner groups to modules in bulk, use a course’s batch module editor or the module batch editor in “My Library” (see Edit Multiple Modules at a Time with Module Batch Editors).
Assigning/Removing Learner Groups to Learners:
