In Canvas, the word ‘groups’ is used throughout the platform to mean different things. The “Groupies” series is designed to clarify these nuances in hopes that you become a ‘fan’ of all groups in Canvas.


In this session, we look at student or user groups.


Student groups can exist within a course, as well as, outside of a course (account level groups). Let’s just jump in and deep-dive into these ‘people’ groups, be they at the course level or account level. From group settings to use-cases, let’s group together to discuss everything there is to know about groups.


NOTE: This is not a session on group work or group assignments.



Participants who attend the session will learn about...

  • Defining people groups (often called student groups)
  • Setup steps for people/user groups
  • Considerations for effective administration and facilitation people/user groups



  • TBD
