Instructors can manually create groups and assign members, or they can create sign-up sheets for groups and have students self-enroll. When creating groups, instructors choose which tools should be made available for the students to use within their group. The tools most often selected are Discussion Board, Email, and File Exchange.

Once Groups have been created, instructors can create Assignments that are designated “Group Assignments”. This means that only one submission will be accepted from the group and the grade given to that assignment will go into the Grade Center for each student in the group.

Students will gain access to their group area MyGroupsand the tools that are active using a link that will appear in the left-hand navigation menu called My Groups.
