How to create student groups
From the course Front Page, click the Participants link in the Navigate Drawer on the left-hand side. Then, find and click on the Actions button at the top right and select the Groups option from the drop-down menu.
On the following page, click the Create group button at the bottom. Then, enter a Group name and click Save changes. The Group you have just created will now be listed as an available group.
To assign students to a group, click the group name in the Groups pickbox and click the Add/remove users button on the bottom right of the page. This will bring you to a page showing both Group members and Potential members. Select a user or multiple users and click the Add button to assign them to the group.
