The Groups tool allows instructors to create group work areas for students. Instructors can create groups for projects and assignments, or create special work areas for students with different learning needs.
Students can belong to multiple groups within the same course. For example, students can simultaneously belong to a group for class projects, a group for special interest discussions, and a group for advanced users. Each group can have its own discussion forums and assignment folders. Instructors can grade members of groups individually or as a team.
