Moodle 3: Administration Block: How to Create Groups

Groups allows for filtering students so that work and grades can be accessed separately.

Groups can be useful if:

  • You have a course where you have several classes, and you want to filter your activities and gradebook so you only see one class at a time.
  • You are sharing a course with other teachers and you want to filter your activities and gradebook so you don’t see the students from your colleagues’ classes.
  • You want to allocate a particular activity, resource or topic section to just one class or set of users and you don’t want others to see it.
  • You need to create a group comprised of other groups, called a grouping, in order to use bulk actions on certain types of groups such as sending an email to certain classes.

--- For more information on groups, please see: Moodle Docs.
