Creating groups at the account-level is similar to viewing groups at the course-level. The groups created at the account-level will still show up in the Groups Menu in Global Navigation. You can also create groups at the sub-account level.
Viewing user groups is an account permission. If you cannot view user groups, your admin has restricted this option.
Setting up groups for the purposes of collaboration is better handled through building courses or groups under the appropriate sub-account level, since you can't assign non-admins to sub-accounts.
In Global Navigation, click the Admin link , then click the name of the account .
In Account Settings, click the People link.
