Group Tools:

Once you have accessed your group homepage, a list of group tools is located under the group description and group member list. You will find a listing of all group tools below. If you do not see one or more of these tools in your group tool listing, it is because your instructor has chosen not to utilize it.

  1. Collaboration: Meet classmates and moderators for real-time discussion or class lessons.
  2. File Exchange: Share files with Group members.
  3. Group Blog: Create Blog entries that are shared with your Group members.
  4. Group Discussion Board: Discuss topics with only group members.
  5. Group Journal: Keep a Journal about your Group activities that the instructor can review.
  6. Group Tasks: Keep track of Group tasks.
  7. Group Wiki: Build out shared content in the form of linked Web pages.
