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

From UBC Wiki
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.

Selecting self-enroll allows students to assign themselves to a group of their choice using a sign-up sheet that the instructor can make available on the group's listing page or by adding a link to a course area. When you select self-enroll, you can choose to make the group available immediately to students, or made available only after all of the members have signed up.

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.
