Creating Groups

Howcan red.jpg How can I use this tool?

In order to complete group projects, WebCT Vista's "Group Manager" tool automatically generates your lists, allows students to sign up on a list, or allows you to manually split your students into groups.

  • Have your students work on a research topic or presentation as a group, even from a distance.
  • Put your students into "discussion groups" to discuss specific topics.

  • Sign-up Sheets: Once a student has put their name on a sign-up sheet, they cannot remove themselves if they change their mind. The instrutor will need to manually remove the student from the list before they can sign-up on a new topic.
  • Sign-up Sheets on Homepage: Sign-up sheets can only be placed on the homepage. They cannot be included in a learning module.
