In order to use some of the activities within this guide, you must first create groups within your LATTE course. Groups enable instructors and TAs to manage subsets of their students within their LATTE courses. You can create and edit groups of students manually, or use Moodle's automated tools to create groups and assign course members to groups.
IMPORTANT Different schools use different themes for their LATTE courses which affects the steps to access certain course settings. Some boxes on this page include different instructions for each school. Please double check that you are looking at the correct tab for your school.
A grouping is a cluster of related groups. If you have multiple types or sets of groups within the same course, you will need to create groupings to keep them organized and to use them with the correct activities.
For example, some courses use Private Forums to manage their one-on-one conversations with students within LATTE. All of the Private Forum groups are related, as are groups you would create for an assignment. If you don’t create groupings to organize your groups, students would be able to submit their assignment using their Private Forum group or post to their assignment group in the Private Forum.
If you have multiple sets of groups within your course, you will need to create groupings before you can use groups with an activity. See the instructions in the Groupings box above to set up groupings.
