The LearnDash Buddy Up add-on allows students enrolled in a course to create groups and collaborate. Users can send group invitations, so that they can easily “buddy-up” on their own. These groups establish a classroom-like environment, allowing students to socialize and communicate with their peers about their courses.
Features That Boost Student Collaboration
Students can create private groups among their peers by directly inviting any other user enrolled in the course to “buddy-up” with the click of a button. Users have the option to accept or reject invitations and to request to join a pre-existing group from a list displayed on the course page.
After creating a Buddy Up group, a global group chat box is created for the course page for students to talk about the course.
Students can find other enrollees that are currently online on the Online Users area so that they can interact with each other through private messaging. Students can also find other users using a search box. Private conversation threads can be found listed on the left side of the chat box.
You can disallow specific users or user roles from receiving invitations to join groups and determine the maximum numbers of students that can join a single group.
Send emails to notify students when they have been invited to join a group or when their request to join a group has been accepted or rejected.
