Create a Group in ELMS-Canvas for Students
Groups are useful resources that support student collaboration and information sharing in an ELMS-Canvas course space. There are two kinds of groups in ELMS-Canvas: student-created and instructor-generated.
Create Your Own Group
Instructors can enable students to create their own groups. In such cases, all group resources—file storage, discussion forums, wiki pages—are available to members; however group activities are not tied to the gradebook.
- Click on the People link in the left Navigation menu.
NOTE: If your instructor has disabled the link, you will not be able to access groups.
- Click on the View User Groups button on the right hand side of the page.
- Click the + Group button on the right hand side of the page.
- Enter a group name, and click the box next to the names of students you would like to invite. Click the "Joining" drop-down menu to choose membership options (invite-only or open to all). Click the "Create Group" button after you are finished.
Join a Self-Enrollment Group
Follow steps 1-3 from above. If your instructor has created self-sign up groups, you will see a list of Available Groups. Click the join this group link to join.
