Ability to Manually Assign Students to Groups before publishing course

    I have 200+ students enrolled in a course that I want to have fully designed and developed before publishing.  I do not want to have to scramble around after the course is published to manually assign the students to their working groups.  Even if it is super easy to drag and drop the names into the groups, I have a ton of work to do, and being able to do this work in advance would be a huge help.
