Moodle: Using Groups

Moodle's Groups feature allows instructors to divide a class into sections or create collaborative working groups for particular course Activities. For example, if you teach a course that enrolls both graduate and undergraduate students, you might create a group for each if you wanted to provide them with slightly different assignments or readings. Or you might create groups for students collaborating on a project, so that each group can have their own Forum to communicate about project work.  

Before you start, you may need the following:

  • an Instructor of record or Other editing teacher role in a Bryn Mawr Moodle course.
