Welcome to Teachfloor's in-depth guide on its community feature.

Teachfloor being an LMS platform that is centric on social learning, found it important to have an in-app community feature, where learners can interact with each other, and with their instructor as well.

Teachfloor in-app community feature is beyond a community, where learners can also have open discussions, and can send private messages as well. Above all, it is monitored by the account administrator.

Community features

(see the screenshot below)

It is the view from the administrator account. Instructors and assistants will only be able to see the community of the courses they are assigned to.

On the left side

On the left side, you can see all the courses published on your Teachfloor account. Each course will have its separate community. Learners will only be able to interact with other learners, instructors and assistants of the same course.

In the center

In the center, you will see the discussion board, where you (including learners, instructors and assistants) can post anything, such as making announcements or starting a discussion.

On the right side

On the right side, you can see the list of members, and instructors (including all the learners enrolled in the specific course, instructors and course assistants). You can start a private conversation with each member by clicking on its icon name.
