Moodle 3: Administration Block: How to Create an Overall-Grouping

Overall-Grouping is a special group made up of only other groups.

This can be a useful tool for:

  • Categorizing class sections
  • Sending assignments to certain types of groups but not others
  • Several other bulk actions, such as sending out an email for a sick day to some or all classes.
