Users need a less-clicky way to navigate to course groups. Instructors need a way to assign a student group leader who will be able to manage some administrative group tasks.


User goals

As any user:

  • I can see and access groups in my courses using a new "Groups" tab on the People page for the course


As an instructor:

  • I can designate a student group leader for each group in a groupset


As a student who has been designated as a group leader:

  • I can add or remove group members
  • I can rename the group
  • I cannot change the group limit (how many people may be in the group)


This feature was released into production Canvas on 12/20/14. Read more in the release notes here.
