Providing different content to cohorts of students in Open edX via content groups
Content groups are a way to create control what content is visible to which cohorts. Click here for more on what cohorts are and how they're created.
An example: Say you have your students organized into two separate cohorts: Cohort A for students taking the class for a grade, and Cohort B for students who are just auditing the course. With content groups you can make all of the graded assignments only visible to Cohort A. Here's how it works:
Step 1: Start from Studio and navigate to "Group Configurations" (Under Settings).
Next, create a new content group, by simply clicking "+ New content group" and typing the name of the new content group.
For our example, we'll name the new content group "Cohort A Content"
Step 2: Switch over to the LMS, and click on your Instructor Dashboard
Navigate to the "Membership" sub menu and scroll down to the section called "Cohort Management"
