Use Groups to present the same Activity for every group and allow the instructor to view gradebook and activities by group.
Students may be placed in Groups within a course. They can then be used to limit shared activities, like Forums, to the smaller groups, rather than the entire class. The specifics of how Groups actually work is very dependent on the type of Activity, Resource, or Group Mode that is used. Groups can be used on both the Course level and the Activity level. One important item to remember is that using a Group Mode allows the exact same resources or activity to be presented to groups in a course for smaller working groups. The key concept is that the materials and activities are the same for each group. Here are some common uses of groups taken from the Moodle documentation for https://docs.moodle.org/37/en/Groups:
- You are a teacher in a course where you have several classes and you want to filter your activities and gradebook so you only see one class at a time.
Using Groups to Restrict Access to Content
Please see Assignment Restrictions Advanced: Adding Access Restrictions to Moodle Assignments for details about using groups to restrict access to Assignments. For other activities, resources, and topics areas, use the Restrict Access section to add restrictions based on group membership, among other criteria.
