Group Homepage

Jump to solution

I am teaching an online class and I have created groups under the People tab. I have posted an announcement within each groups Homepage. My question is... How do I tell students to get to this group Homepage?

Hi taylor.may@kellerisd.net‌ - They can do this one of two ways.  One is via the PEOPLE menu in the course site itself, similar to the way you do.  Unlike your view, however, they will see but one tab called GROUPS.  Details are here:

How do I view all groups in a course as a student? 

The other way is via a GROUPS icon on the far left navigation pane in Canvas, which will show all groups they are in.  Details for that are outlined here:  https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-10661-421255565 

Hope this helps, Taylor!

Thank you so much.

Glad to help! Groups is indeed one area where the usually-reliable Student View does not help much.
