Turn your Community into a classroom with Live Events
Learning is more impactful when it’s communal, and ongoing rituals of coming together help to maintain student engagement, momentum and loyalty. Today, your students can get even more value from Thinkific Communities with Live Events.
Within your Community, you’ll see Events in the left menu. From here, you can schedule and organize synchronous learning activities, including lectures, workshops, Q&A, coaching and more.
We built this with flexibility in mind, so you can use the video conferencing software of choice, and then simply copy-paste the link into your Community to run your live event.
These new Live Events features are just the beginning, which means this is the first iteration of many. We’re listening to feedback and improving every step of the way, so watch this space for more exciting updates and opportunities with Live Events!

Keep your Community members engaged and up to date with web notifications
Communities are a powerful tool for bringing your audience together to connect, share knowledge, answer questions and learn from each other. But a critical part of driving that engagement is ensuring that no matter where they are, your members know what’s going on in your community.
Today, we’ve launched web-app notifications in your Community, which ensures your members will learn about new and relevant conversations happening in your community, now through email and your site.
Your new Notification Center is now in the header of your Community, and will allow you and your students to quickly see:
- When a member is added to a Community
- When someone @ mentions you or a member in a post
- When someone comments on your or a member’s post
- When someone replies to your or a member’s comment

Your Admin Dashboard is now more intuitive
The learning experience that you create for your audience is more than just your course. We've recently reorganized your Admin Dashboard to allow you to more easily build and manage your other learning products like Communities, Memberships and Bundles, alongside your Courses.
This newly decluttered dashboard is now more intuitive to your workflow, so you can focus on creating a rich, engaging learning experience—all in one place.
Click below to learn more about what’s changed in your dashboard.
Note: These Admin Dashboard Updates are currently only being released to a portion of our customers, so not every creator will see the layout described above; however, you will be able to take all the same actions, regardless of which layout you are seeing.

Boost engagement by connecting your course with your community
A community can be a rewarding, interactive, safe environment in which students can take what they’ve learned in your course and apply it. When done right, Communities can be a powerful hub of activity and engagement that actually enhances your course offering.
It’s important to create a strong connection between your course and your community so they don’t just feel like separate tasks, but a blended, cohesive learning experience.
Today, your students can seamlessly access your Communities from your course—in just one click.
The Course & Community Connection allows students to easily navigate from within your course directly to a Space within your Community.
Once set up, your students will see a card in their Course Player, which they can click to be taken directly to your Community.
