Start managing group projects in CourseSpaces or Brightspace (starting Fall) by organizing your students into groups. After you make groups, you can:

  • Set up a Group Discussion in Brightspace to give students a place to connect and discuss their group work asynchronously 
  • Set up a Group Assignment in Brightspace so groups can submit their assignment together and your grades and feedback are accessible to all group members 
  • Set up Microsoft Teams to enable faculty, staff, and students to interact online, share and collaboratively edit documents, go through a peer review process, chat, and conduct audio and video calls within small groups.
  • Set up breakout rooms via Zoom to create synchronous small group sessions for whiteboarding / brainstorming and other kinds of group activities.
