General

Grouply is a social learning platform where we learn from each other. The platform enables us to do that by providing courses, quizzes, collaboration features (audio video call, screen sharing, whiteboarding and many more). We believe learning is better when we learn in groups with like-minded people. Platform has lot of interactive social features suitable for group learning. Grouply Platform supports and facilitates the creation of groups and social networking by the Users of the Grouply Platform. Members/learners can put comments, reply to queries, create groups, view the leader board by using the Grouply Platform.
