Create a Group (single group)

Last Updated: Jul 31, 2014 11:29AM PDT
There are two major paths for creating Groups. A single group is a manual process in which you create groups one group at a time and manually enroll students. Groups are managed individually. A "group set" allows you to create multiple groups at once and you can randomly assign students to groups automatically. You can edit either of these groups and enrollments at any time. Group sets are managed as a group.
See https://sdsu-its.desk.com/customer/portal/articles/1580572-creating-group-sets?b_id=699 for instructions on creating a Group Set.

You can move students in and out of groups later if needed using a similar process. Select multiple members at one time by holding down the CTRL key while clicking the names to enroll.
