As a tutor using studentfolio you will want to create groups to manage collaboration and submissions.

What would I use Groups for?

Groups can be set up to enable:

  • Collaboration of a group of students - they can use the group forums for discussion and share files and create group web pages.
  • Peer reviewing - students in a group can share personal pages from their portfolio and give feedback to each other.
  • Enable formal Assignment Submissions - if a group enables 'Submissions' the students enrolled on that group can submit pages to the group, the pages are 'locked' so that the student can no longer edit the page, only the tutor can see the pages and provide feedback.

Request access to set up groups

Only users with ‘staff’ permissions can create groups. By default you will not have permission to create groups.

Academics can request Staff permissions by contacting a Learning Technologies Adviser.

The person who creates the group is automatically made the ‘Group Administrator’. They can give other members of the group either Tutor or Administrator permissions and edit the settings at any time.

Before setting up a group we recommend speaking to your Learning Technologies Adviser
