Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 1.9. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Groups.


Group administration

The Groups administration page, allows you to assign and maintain teachers and students in course groups. There are three columns:

  • People not in a group - Currently unassigned participants.
  • Groups - A list of groups available for this course.
  • Members of selected group - When you select a group this column will display the members of that group

Underneath each column are the options for that column.

To create new groups, type the group name in the text box and click the adjacent Add new group button. You can add a description to this group using the Edit group settings button.

To add a particpant(s) to a group you need to select their name in the first column (use shift or ctrl for multiple selections), select the group you wish to add them to from the centre column, and then click the Add selected to group -> button.

To remove participants from a group, select the appropriate group to view members, select the participants to remove and click the Remove selected members button.

Multiple groups

Moodle1.6


Participants may be added to more than one group in Moodle 1.6.

Group modes

The group mode can be defined at two levels:

  • Course level - the group mode defined at the course level is the default mode for all activities defined within that course. This is determined in the course settings
  • Activity level - each activity that supports groups can also define its own grouping mode. If the course is set to "force group mode" then the setting for each activity is ignored.

There are three group modes:

No groups
There are no sub groups, everyone is part of one big community
Separate groups
Each group can only see their own group, others are invisible
Visible groups
Each group works in their own group, but can also see other groups
