Documentation:Connect/Create Manual Enroll Groups (How To)

Jump to: navigation, search

You can create groups for students to collaborate on work. These groups can be created one at a time or in sets. In a Manual Enroll group, the instructor will assign each student in the course to a group using a course list of the student's names.

Each group has its own space, or homepage, with links to tools to help students collaborate. Only the instructor and the group members can access the group tools. When naming a set of groups, the name of each group has a number added to it when they are first created. For example, a set of groups named "Research" results in groups named "Research 1," "Research 2," and "Research 3," depending upon the number of groups in the set. You can edit the group names after they are created.
