Create and Manage Groups

Summary

In this document you will learn how to Create and Manage Groups.

Overview

The Course Groups feature allows instructors to create groups of students within a course. These course Groups have their own area in Blackboard. These spaces are equipped with tools that can assist in this collaborative process: Blogs, Journals, file sharing and Group Assignments.
Instructors can create a single group or multiple groups in which students can be enrolled manually, automatically, or by allowing the students to enroll themselves. These enrollments can be changed at any time. These groups can be linked through the Course Content page like any other Course Content item.
