If I use Canvas to randomly assign students to group, do they receive a notification of their group and partners contact information?
Steve, technically yes, students would be notified that they were added to a group. Yet, how/when they get notified is 100% dependent on how the student has their notifications set-up - How do I set my Canvas notification preferences as a student? - the notification for "Groups: Membership Update." The default is to be notified once a day, but students could change this to be more frequent or less frequent. If you are concerned about this, then I would recommend asking students to change this so they will be notified immediately. YET, this notification would NOT tell students who else is in their group or how to contact them.
This guide explains to students how to see who is in their group - How do I view all groups in a course as a student?
This guide explains to students how to message another student in their class - How do I send a message to a user in a course in Conversations as a student?
Hope this helps! Kona
