Applying Group Settings in Activities in Moodle

Posted June 3rd, 2011 at 2:59 pm.

In some Activities you will find, at the bottom of the set-up page, a section called “Common module settings.” Here you will find the options to include Group settings. Depending on how you want to set up your activity, you can choose to organize the activity to Separate or Visible Groups.

Group Settings:

  • Separate Groups: By selecting Separate Groups, your activity will be organized into a separate section for each group. Groups will not be able to see the sections of other groups. It creates a private space for group work.
  • Visible Groups: By selecting Visible Groups, your activity will be organized into separate sections for each group, butĀ groups will be able to see the sections of other groups. This is useful if you want groups to hand in their own assignment, but want the whole class to collaborate and work together.
