Groups are like a smaller version of your course and are used as a collaborative tool where students can work together on group projects and assignments.

Within each group, students can create pages, announcements, collaborations, discussions, and calendar events in real time.

 

When Should I Use Groups?

As an instructor, create groups to:

 

  • Set up student group configurations at the course level for assignments and in-class work, both graded and ungraded.
  • Facilitate semester-long projects so that students can communicate and iterate on documents together.
  • Facilitate faculty professional development and institutional committees or activities.
  • Facilitate student-run study groups within courses or at the account level.
