The Groups tool is used to create group work areas for students and tutors. Groups can be used to organise students’ work on projects or assignments, or to create special work areas for users with different learning needs.
Students can belong to any number of groups in the same unit. For example: a student could belong to a group for each class project, a special interest discussion group, and a group for advanced students all at the same time. Each group can have its own discussion, assignments folders, and locker area to work in. Members of groups can be graded as a team or individually.
