About Group Assignment

Learners collaborate synchronously and asynchronously to complete a group activity. Individuals have the ability to create milestones, evaluate their peers, meet with group members virtually, and compile all of their submissions within the project dashboard. The end product is often presented as one cohesive group presentation.

Use Cases

Here are just a few ideas to get started:

  • capstone projects
  • group presentations
  • roleplay activities
  • foreign language conversation

Group Formation

Our new and improved group management workflows can save instructors from hours of busywork. Check out all the options here: Create & Manage Groups.

Group Communication

Learners can use the Chat feature (in the top right hand corner) to communicate. This is a great way to discuss milestones and potential meeting times.


Add Videos

Group members can add individually recorded videos. This can be done in two ways:

  1. Upload Video: Group members can upload videos from their device, or from one of the following cloud storage platforms: Google Drive, OneDrive, or Dropbox.
  2. Record directly in tool: Group members can record their portion of the project within the tool itself.
Combine Videos

Once all video content is added, team members can combine their videos into one cohesive presentation.


See how to combine videos here.

Schedule Meetings

When completing a group project, learners can schedule a meeting. This web conferencing tool serves as a discussion platform to help group members discuss and complete their project. Learners will have access to Virtual Classroom communication and presentation tools.

These virtual meetings can also be recorded and submitted to the assignment.
