The Group tool inside Blackboard courses and communities allows instructors to organize students into pairs or groups to collaborate and work together. Participants inside a group may have access to their own group version of various course tools (Discussion Board, Blog, Wiki, File Exchange, Email, etc.) separate from the rest of the class. Groups can be created manually or automatically by the instructor. When creating Group Sets, there is a third enrollment option to randomly assign student to a group.
Some uses for course groups include:
