Can I divide my students into groups for assignments, discussions, etc.?

Yes, you can divide your students into groups in your Canvas site.  You must first create your group set and then create the individual student groups. 

You have the following options for creating a group set in Canvas:

  • Allow self sign-up
  • Require that group members be in the same section
  • Can split students into x equally-sized groups
  • Can create groups manually
  • Can optionally assign a student leader manually or automatically in a group

Tools available to each individual group:

  • Home page
  • Announcements
  • Pages
  • People
  • Discussions
  • Files
  • Conferences
  • Collaborations
