After following the instructions for
Creating Groups, instructors will need to add students. When creating groups, one of three enrollment types can be selected.
Note: Please know that even if automatic or self-enrollment is selected, it is necessary to manually groups if students are withdrawing after the start of the term.
As a best practice, it is recommended to add a Groups link in the course navigation bar (see Navigation Bar for instructions), then share these instructions with them.
After creating and enrolling students to groups, set up group submission folders or discussion topics. See
Creating Submission Folders and
Creating Group Discussions for more information.
