3.2. Automatically Created Groups

1- Groups may be created automatically via the Auto-create groups button in Administration > Course administration > Users > Groups.

2- A naming scheme can be created automatically. # is replaced by sequential numbers, and @ by letters. For example:

  • Group @ will create group with a naming scheme Group A, Group B, Group C . . .
  • Group # will create group with a naming scheme Group 1, Group 2, Group 3 . . .

3- You can specify if you would like to create:

  • x number of Groups or
  • each group contain x number of students

When selecting Members per group the Prevent last small group will allocate additional members to an existing group rather then create a new group with fewer members than x. This setting is found by clicking on the Show More link.

4- Click Submit button to create groups.
