Students make up groups. Groups of students make up a grouping.

Groups enable students to work in 'teams' on the same activity. Groups can be allowed to see other groups' work or only see their own groups work.

Groupings are clusters of groups which work on different activities. A grouping usually cannot see the activities of other groupings.

Default Groups and Groupings

A default group is a class that students enrol in, they appear to students as Lectures, Tutorials, Practicals etc but are officially named with a Class Number through Medici.

A default grouping is an offering, e.g. SP5 2020 Internal, City West. 

A learnonline site can have multiple offerings, for example BANK 1005 has two offerings and therefore two default groupings - 'Internal, City West' and 'External, City West, On Line'.

Default groups and groupings cannot be changed but additional groups can be manually added to a course offering. Additional groupings can be created either from the original default groups or from your own manually created groups.

The same groups and groupings can be used in multiple sections, resources or activities throughout your course. They can be applied to:

  • all resources and activities as a whole at the course level or
  • individual resources and activities in Common modules settings.
