The CLE makes it possible for you to develop online group work in your courses with Groups and Groupings features. Although they sound very similar, they have different functions. It can be a little confusing until you understand how they both work.
A Group is a collection of one or more individual users. Groups enable instructors to split the students into sub-sets to view resources or work on an activity together.
A Grouping is a collection of groups that can be used to break up the class in to different sets of groups of students. Groupings can be applied to restrict access to an activity, resource, or topic.
Are you interested in developing a collaborative student assignment? Would you like to make resources in your course visible to one group and hide them from another? Take a look at the videos below to learn about using and applying Groups and Groupings to your course.
