Groups Overview (Student Help)

Groups in Canvas allows you to work in small groups with your classmates to collaborate on assignments, projects, and presentations.

  • Access course-specific groups directly by clicking on People (located in the left menu of the course).
  • Click on the Groups tab to see a list of all groups for the course.
  • Click the Arrow next to a group name to view its group details.
  • Click the Visit link to view the group home page.

Group Tools

  • Assignment Submissions are similar to regular assignment submissions. However, your instructor may require one submission for the entire group or request that each group member submit the assignment individually.
  • Discussions allow you to create and participate in discussions with members of your group.
  • Collaborations allow you to create and edit shared documents with members of your group.
