About Groups

The Manage Groups tool is used to create group work areas for users. Groups can be used to organize users’ work on projects or assignments, or to create special work areas for users with different learning needs.

Users can belong to any number of groups in the same course. For example, a user could belong to a group for each class project, a special interest discussion group, and a group for advanced users all at the same time. Each group can have its own discussion forums, dropbox folders, and locker area to work in. Members of groups can be graded as a team or individually.

Do one of the following to access the Manage Groups tool:

  1. Add Groups on the navigation bar (See Navigation and Navbars for more information)
  2. Click Edit Course on the navigation bar, and select Groups under Learner Management.
