Sometimes instructors may wish to divide the class into smaller groups. Group pages are useful if you want to collaborate with other users for a project.
To enter a group space, go to Group Pages > group name. Your instructor will likely assign a group page to specific users.
Depending on the course, your instructor may have enabled or disabled some group tools. The default tools are listed below:
- Group Discussion Board allows group members to engage in asynchronous discussion. See the discussion board tutorials for help on posting.
- Collaboration allows group members to chat with each other in real-time. See collaboration tools for a tutorial on using the chat tool.
- File Exchange allows group members to exchange files. Simply click upload to upload files to share with other group members.
- Send Email allows group members to communicate via e-mail messages. See the tutorial on sending e-mail for help.
