Students can now request a public Group in Community
What: In addition to creating private Groups, students can now request new public Groups to be created in Unibuddy Community by the higher ed institutional team.
Why: Qualitative feedback we’ve collected from students indicates they would like to be able to start a new Group in their higher ed institution’s Unibuddy Community. This gives students more ownership of their communities, and addresses the problem of multiple private groups being created for the same purpose when a public one, listed in the Explore page, would do the trick.
How: For now, we are letting higher ed admins know by email which public Groups have been requested, so they can approve the request.
