D2L Groups

The Groups tool is used to create group work areas for students. As a student, you may attend a course that utilizes the group tool. For example, you could belong to a group for each class project or a special interest discussion group.

Each group can have its own discussion forums, Assignment Submission Folders, and locker area to work in. Members of groups can be graded as a team or individually. Setting up groups is handled entirely by the instructor. If your course utilizes the Groups tool, please contact your instructor with any questions regarding group management.
