Does group membership mean that I can use Treehouse as an educational platform for my students?

I'd like to know more about group memberships, their features and possibly see a demo.

I'm also wondering about the pricing. From what I'm getting from the page responsible for specifying it, I assume that group memberships are twice as much costly altogether as regular memberships, because the student has to pay and I'm also paying for them to be in my group. Is that correct?

For information about memberships and billing, you'd probably do best to contact the staff directly. See the Support page for more info.

I'm a group member myself, all fees are paid by the organization. I suppose it's up to each organization to decide to charge individuals or not, but Treehouse does not double-bill.

As a group member I get a few extra menu options that other students do not see such as organization goals and separate leaderboards (no content differences).

Thank you. What I'm looking for is checking my students progress, see what they are struggling with, handing out tasks for them...etc. Is that possible?

The staff can tell you more about that. My group doesn't use individual goals but there might be support for them. I'm also not an administrator for the group so I'm not aware of what kind of tracking info they get beyond the leaderboard.

I can tell you that the group leaderboards are more detailed than the general ones, and show separate totals for Points, Badges, Challenges, Videos, and Quizzes for each student.
