Creating groups is really useful for sites with both small and large membership. Introducing groups within your site can support project work and collaborative exercises enabling the sharing of information and materials with a particular group of students.

Creating Groups

  1. Click on the Site Info tool
  2. Click on Manage Groups
  3. Click on Create New Group
  4. Insert a title and description for the group
  5. Highlight each name in the Site Member List that you want to add to the group (to add multiple people, hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard and select each name required)
  6. Click on the relevant navigation icon in between both lists to move the selected participant(s) from the Site Member List into the Group Member List 
  7. Click on Add to create the group.

Creating Groups

Site members can be added to multiple groups. Please note that when you create subsequent groups, the Site Members List will display all members of the site.

  2. Click on Manage Groups
  3. Click Edit against the group to be edited
