In this document you will learn how to Create and Manage Groups.
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.
To access the Group Tools area select All Groups from the options in the upper right of the groups page.
Below the list of groups select View Options
This will display every group and every tool that is available. Tools with a green check mark are available to the group users. Tools with a red X are not available. Click on the symbol to change it.
