Moodle Course User Groups
When the users enrolled in a course need to be divided into groups that have access to separate course activities and/or resources, it is necessary to use the Moodle "groups" and "groupings" designations. Moodle requires that such groups use self-enrollment and enrollment keys. (NOTE: Moodle uses the single 'l', i.e., enrolment, enrol.)
The following describes the steps to create Moodle groupings within a course. You must make groups for the students to enroll into, and then make groupings for the groups. Separate activities and resources may restricted to groupings, but not to groups alone. However, a grouping is allowed to have only one group.
It would be helpful to be familiar with the Moodle icons before beginning this procedure. These instructions assume your course is already created. Follow the links to the Moodle documentation pages for specific explanations. Be sure to save your changes at the end of each step.
NOTE: for using
MISTC, you will need to create a link to the MISTC download page (make the URL a resource), a link to
connect to the live class (an activity), and a folder for the lecture recordings (a resource). If you are using
groups and groupings, each of these will need to be made available to the grouping as described above.
