Group mode

The group mode can be one of three levels:

  • 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

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

  • 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.

Visible to students

You can hide the activity from students by selecting "Hide" here. It is useful if you wouldn't like to make the activity available immediately.
