Account-level Student Groups

I have a situation where there are communication holes since moving from Moodle to Canvas. To cut down the list a bit it is around communications with a cohort rather than a course, student news, student forums, etc.

I am hoping that there is a way to get most if not all of this functionality within Canvas. I came across Account-level Student Groups under People then Groups. From the brief description these would appear to be almost everything that we need, however I have not been able to find more details on what these groups do, what functions are available to these groups, etc.

My idea is to have a group per cohort.


Anyone point me to some detailed documentation on these or give me some more in depth information that I can take to the people requesting the functions.


Thanks in advance.
