At Pathwright, we hope technology empowers teachers and experts alike. Last month, I wrote about the importance of these complementary relationships. (Check that out here if you missed it.)
This week, I wanted to share a feature that empowers this duo of skills: Cohorts. A Cohort is a set of learners who move through a version of your course together. Cohorts give you the ability to offer your course in multiple ways simultaneously.
Here are four Cohorts you might create:
Create a self-paced Cohort at a lower price point. The Cohort might involve less moderation (or no moderation), but learners understand they get the value of working at their own pace.
Offer a guided, schedule-based Cohort with personal feedback from a teacher. Teachers might give feedback on course work and meet with learners over video chat or in person.
Offer premium levels of a course with additional bonus content or more individualized instruction.
Offer private Cohorts for another teacher or organization to teach to their own learners.
Multiple course offerings means even more ways to help learners. The beauty is that you can offer any combination of these groups at any time. Set custom prices for each or offer them for free — it’s up to you.
If you’re already using Pathwright and would like a little more guidance on offering Cohorts, check out this article from our Guidance Team.
