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 things groups in Canvas.


In this session, we look at Group Discussions.


How are group discussions different from class-wide discussions? What options are available when using graded (or ungraded) group discussions? And how do you navigate among group discussions once students begin posting? This session explores incorporating graded and ungraded group discussions into course design, and we'll consider the kinds of course activities and assignments that are best suited to group discussions.




Participants who attend the session will learn about...

  • Setting up graded and ungraded group discussions
  • Accessing and grading group discussions
  • Considerations and use cases for incorporating group discussions into courses



  • TBD
