The group homepage is the center for group activity and contains a description of the group, a list of members, and tools. If your instructor permits, you can customize this page by adding a banner, selecting a color scheme, and adding personal modules, such as Report Card. Personal modules are visible only to the member who added the modules. Access Group Tools and Group Members here.
Each group has its own space in the course to work together. When inside your group, use the tools your instructor has made available to you. Be sure to ask about any tools you want to use but do not find on your groups page. Review any instructions provided by your instructor on how to use these tools to complete group work. Tools that are available to a group include:
-OR-On the My Groups panel, click the name of a group.

On the Groups page, click Sign Up to access the sign-up sheet. On the Sign Up Sheet page, when you click Sign Up, you are automatically added to the group.
