LAKERS TOGETHER: ‘We can’t wait to meet you.’ One constant is our passion for teaching. Watch a faculty member talk about your learning experience.
The Groups feature allows Instructors and students to create groups of students within a course. These Course Groups have their own area on Blackboard Learn. These spaces are equipped with tools that can assist in this collaborative process: Blogs, Wikis, Journals, file sharing and Group Assignments. Groups can be created one at a time, or in sets. After you create a group, you can edit the group’s tools, name, availability, and members.
Instructors can create a single group or multiple groups in which students can be enrolled manually, randomly, 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.
Use the same steps as creating a single group. Then, based on the enrollment option you choose, you can choose from these:
** Note: Random enrollment only applies to students who are currently enrolled in the course. When naming a set of groups, the name of each group has a number added to it when they are first created. For example, a set of groups named “Intro to Biology”, results in groups name “Intro to Biology 1”, Intro to Biology 2”, depending upon the number of groups in the set.
