Can Perusall be used with Groups?

Jump to solution

I'm considering a switch to Perusall as a substitute for regular discussions. My classes are large and I need to break them down into groups for any discussion-like assignment. Can Perusall be used with Groups in Canvas? #perusall

@ahimsel, Perusall does have a group function. You can either let Perusall randomize the groups, or you can manually assign students. If you are running groups in Canvas and want the groups in Perusall to be the same, you would manually assign the students in Perusall. One caveat is that Perusall needs the student to access Perusall once from Canvas to list the student in the Perusall roster. Does that help?
