When Should I Use Groups as an Instructor?
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.
Students can use groups as a collaborative tool to work with classmates on group projects and assignments.
