Blackboard (Faculty) - Groups: About Groups

This document provides an overview of Groups.

Instructors can create formal groups of students to provide space for students to collaborate on work. 

  • Groups can be created one at a time or in sets. Group sets allows the instructor to create multiple groups, each with the same group tool availability.
  • Instructors can manually add members to groups or allow students to self-enroll.
  • Each group has its own space, with links to tools to help students collaborate, including
    • File Exchange
    • Group Blog
    • Group Discussion Board
    • Group Journal
    • Group Tasks
    • Group Wiki
    • Email
  • Instructors can also create Group Assignments, where one student submits a paper on behalf of the group, and all members receive the same grade.
  • Only the instructor and the group members can access the group tools for any given group.
