    @Hemant Sajwan That's clever, it's a background screenshot of the skool group, collects their email and then takes them to the community

Classroom is a lightweight content portal for online courses. Create modules, embed videos, add resources, transcripts, and track student progress. Classroom integrates with your Skool community, so your students will have 1-login, 1-profile, and 1-search — for everything. Totally free. Watch the video below to see how it works. Enjoy!

    This is really cool. One question, if I were to host my course through Skool, where should I do it? When you embed with YouTube it has to be unlisted which means people could easily share the lessons using the YouTube video link. I haven't tried Vimeo or Wistia so I don't know if they have a free function that stops this from happening. Thanks.

So this is a link to a podcast Sam was on recently, it's not actually secret but if I titled this Sam's podcast most of you would assume it's the one with Blake LaGrange This one is major value and may as well be a quantum recording Check it out

This is super useful for when you want to draw attention to a post in your group, FB has it. Just a Skool notification, doesn't have to be an email or anything. Could also just be for admins so it doesn't get spammed. @Sid Sahasrabuddhe

    @Sid Sahasrabuddhe Perfect! Does this also apply to when an admin leaves a comment? or is it just posts? Agree on the member point, they don't need to access that feature.

    @Sid Sahasrabuddhe can we get it for comments? to draw attention to student posts - I keep pins for ring the bell

Currently there are only 3 ways to get points on Skool... 1) You can make posts in the community and hope to get likes on your posts. 2) You can comment on posts and hope to get likes on your comments. 3) You can reply to to comments and hope to get likes on your replies. But what if you're an introvert or lone wolf who doesn't want to make posts, comment, or reply? Or what if you're just mega focused on course work and feel the community is a distraction/waste of time? Or what if a community is 'dead' and doesn't give you the likes you deserve? Or what if you don't speak English that well and suck at interacting w other people in english? How can you get points, level up and access new course material or the bonuses then? You can't. Or at least, not very well. Because you're relying soley on other people's approval and validation for your progress. And that's an issue. Because most of my membership materials & bonuses get unlocked as you level up... and I've already had several members in my community reach out to me and tell me they want to level up but don't want to make posts, comment, or reply just to get points. + I'm part of a Skool group with only 15 members, only 5 of which are active, so it makes it incredibly hard to get points & level up. So what's the solution? What if you could also get points by watching course material? Call em "Progress Points" Or what if you could also get +1 point each week just by remaining a member? Call em "Member Loyalty Points" Or what if you could also get points by completing a quiz? Call em "Quiz Completion Points" These are just some ideas. Happy to hear yours below.

    I feel there are different use cases which make it hard for The Skool team to solve problems like this Loyalty wouldn’t make sense in my group as mine is lifetime access so they’ll never leave Course content is seemingly hard to track as vids are hosted externally so how do we know students are actually progressing I like the quiz option Maybe having the points system vary by group size, small groups are able to rank up with less points etc Good post!

Cheers 🍻

    If that’s not a Guinness you aren’t welcome back in Ireland @Sid Sahasrabuddhe

Do I get a point for every like on a comment or post? Are there any other ways to get points? Polls for example? How much is a point worth at each level? Just want to clarify

    @Ted Carr Doesn't seem like the case in the WeTube SS group I see we've both been racking up points in there 😁 But looking at the metrics of some top students there, they're on 800+ with only a small number of likes on their posts And there's no way they could hit that many points with comments in a few days I feel like its a skool secret like the youtube algo

  • 0 likes • Nov '22

    @Sid Sahasrabuddhe Ah, does 1 point = 1 like? I don't mean to dispute it or say it's not transparent, I thought that maybe I was missing something with the point system

Hey everyone. I have a number of courses that unlock at a certain level. The video's are locked but the descriptions are still visible (see picture). Is there a way to lock descriptions, so they cannot be seen by those who do not have access?

Hey I use web hooks to invite all of our customers automatically. We have no use for join requests and it only ends up in non-customers trying to join. I know you can decline and ban but it happens a lot with different people.

Let's say I have a group set up with 1000 members. Let's say I have no personal involvement in the group as I have a coaching team who monitors it and deals with messages. As I am the main authority in the group because it's my brand and my community... I would receive a lot of unwanted messages. Would it be possible to turn off DMs from members of that community? Or have a setting that allows people to message you based on the community they're in. I get unsolicited spam from some free groups I'm in too, so I'd like to have the ability to turn off messages from that groups members. Other solution might be to have a message requests section on my inbox, like FB has. Thanks!

We are moving our paid mastermind community from FB to Skool at the end of this month. Current set up is Course in CF, Community in FB and Coaching on Zoom. We currently have 1600+ active members on a $10k product. Our FB group is very active and I am nervous about losing some engagement. I will be releasing V2.0 of our MasterClass to use as a carrot to get people over to Skool and I'm hoping that this will get the majority of people over. Question: Any suggestions on best practices for getting people over to Skool? How long should we keep the current FB group live? I really don't want the community in 2 places. How log should we keep V1.0 of the MasterClass on CF?

    Just commenting to give you some moral support, it is a bit stressful but I’ve done it all and our results have really gone up since moving to skool

Just curious as to how you guys track student progress for courses in classroom The videos are hosted externally so I’m not sure how you’re able to know which videos have been watched etc. Thanks

Searched this and saw a few posts but I have a question. If I make someone an admin, are they able to remove other admins or the owner of the group? Sounds paranoid but good to know. Also, is a moderator able to add classroom content, and schedule coaching calls? My current understanding of mods is that they can: - Delete comments, posts, and remove members

Can we double click / tap a message in DMs to like it? Good for when you want to end a conversation / approve of something without having to type back. I know it's small but it's a cool feature!

When we send out email invites to students via Webhook - is it a 1 time link? Just wondering if students are able to create multiple Skool accounts in our group from that email invite. Thanks

Asked a student to share his "why" for starting our program... Engagement is insane 43 comments in a day, we have 134 members Feels like I'm really building something by having it on Skool Friend of mine still uses FB, looks fine until I see his notifications - big no no. Anyway, appreciate the help in here and hope I can share some valuable stuff in the next few months!

    Course with community Not sure man! Tell me a bit more about your goals with it?

When students join, they see the levels system in our platform. It makes sense to have The group owner (me) and our coaches at the highest level. We're in a position of authority and it's a subtle thing to show that to new students. Opinions? @Sam Ovens @Sid Sahasrabuddhe

    @Sid Sahasrabuddhe Thanks, sent you a DM with a 1 min explainer video

Hey folks, I'm currently focusing on improving student results in my paid community. I've been working closely with an 8 fig CEO who sells masterminds + coaching for business owners in a large UK market. He gave me some actionable steps to start getting more student wins, so I wanted to share them here for free :) 1. 1-2 group coaching calls per week keeping students on track and accountable, answering questions etc. Pretty basic but essential 2. Have a team member (or you) message 10 students per day and ask them what they're doing this week, what they're going to have done for next week etc. 3. Have a team member actively respond to posts in the group (I have 120+ students so this is something I need help with) - again, keep them accountable, ask them to fill out worksheets, give them homework etc. @Sid Sahasrabuddhe also share some tips... Do weekly / monthly / quarterly check ins with students to see where they're at and how you can help. Pin your student wins in the group for a few days so it's the first hings students see Add a free resource to your group description (a link / downloadable pdf) - for me this is a roadmap for students... At the end of the free pdf, encourage them to engage in the group and reach new levels on skool. Offer incentives for different levels in Skool. - Some of these are basic, but some are new to me, can't wait to try them. Hope this is valuable, and drop a like if so :)

I'm in the process of moving my huge video course over to Skool, because I think it will be a better customer experience. (I won't lie, it's a mega pain in the ass downloading all that video content and uploading to bunny.net, also re-titling all of the content, even when I've got a staff member to help... Sorry Sam) But I think it's for the best. If you've done this before, have you seen an improvement in engagement / student results? Do you have anything to back it up? Thanks!

    @Sid Sahasrabuddhe Cheers man! It's definitely going to be easier for most, I just have a lot of content so it's my own specific headache, but it'll be done this week. Thanks!

Trying to migrate my course to Skool, and I want lessons to be in order. But as we're creating lessons, they keep automatically shuffling up and down, even when we try to put them back in place. It's super annoying and stopping us from getting the course up in the right order. Any fix for this @Sid Sahasrabuddhe ?

    @Sid Sahasrabuddhe I've done that no problem, is there a way to automate member removal?

When selecting my storage regions on the video storage config., the Skool help article for bunny says to pick these two servers. Just wondering if that has any effect on who can watch my content? Most of my members are in Europe. Might be a silly question but just want to make sure! @Sid Sahasrabuddhe

I'm considering hosting my course on Skool, right now it's on Kajabi. I have over 50 videos and 250+ members who've paid £997. Problem is, someone can easily share my entire course as the links aren't hidden behind the group entry screen. I really want to host here but I need to ensure my content doesn't get pirated. My course has been requested a few times on piracy websites but it's hosted privately on Kajabi so it's well protected. I'd just love this feature on here. Just a screen that says - "You must be a member of this group to see this classroom" Would love to hear your thoughts @Sid Sahasrabuddhe @Nick Guadagnoli

    Correction, I've checked course permissions and found the problem here. My next problem is, what video hosting is the best for privacy? What Sam uses for his classroom is perfect. There is no way to share the video that he's got inside his classroom. Love to know what the simplest + most cost effective hoosting platform for this is. Bunny.net seems good but I don't like how it charges based on usage etc. I just want to pay for a set amount of video storage and forget about it.
