What is the Group Choice Activity?
The Group choice activity allows course participants to enroll themselves in a group within a course. Course instructors can choose the groups offered and the maximum number of learners (course participants) allowed in each group.
Learners can explore the members of each group before making a selection, and (if the instructor allows it) change their selected group until the deadline.
More than one group may be chosen if necessary. There is the possibility to decide in which order the groups are listed ("Sort groups by"): Name or Group creation date.
Create Group(s) for Your Course
1. Before you can use the Group choice activity, you will need to create groups within your course. You can do from Course administration > Users >Groups.
2. In your course, with editing turned on, add the Group choice activity from the activity/resource chooser.
a. Give it a name and, if required or needed, a description.
b. Set all desired/required settings.
