Group Course Settings

ClassX consists of two major parts – a Learning Management System (LMS) and a social media platform. When creating a group here, you are creating a social group. However, if you also want to create courses and associate them with your group, you will need to create a group in the LMS. Fortunately, we’ve made it super easy to do that. All you need to do is check the “Yes, I want this group to sync with an LMS group.” option.
