Groups are specific communities of learners within a course or Specialization. Groups are usually set up by colleges, universities, businesses, or other institutions where lots of members are taking a Coursera course together.

To join a group on Coursera, you need to be invited by the group admin.

When you're invited to a group:

  • You'll get an email invitation with the option to accept.
  • After you accept the invitation, you'll be asked to log in to Coursera, or make a new account if you don't have one already.
  • You'll be added to the group.

If you are missing a group invitation email, check your spam folder.

When you take a course in a group:

  • You'll have the same access to course materials as any other learner taking the course.
  • The group leader or admin will be able to see your course progress and grades.
  • If the group has one, you can see and post in that group's private discussion forum.
  • You'll get announcements and updates for that group.
