  • Groups: On the Course level can you assign a user to one (or more) group. Basically, in a course you can assign a context(activity) to a group. When members of the group leave the course, they lose their identity with the group.
  • Cohorts:On the site level you assign a user to a Cohort group. Cohorts are used in the enrolment process. You can enrol a cohort in one or more courses. A cohort loses its identity once the individuals enter a context of a course but gains it back when they leave.
  • Groupings are a collection of groups. If you had 10 groups, you could combine or mix and match the smaller groups into 2 or more groupings. You can assign a grouping to a context like an assignment.
