Canvas - Creating Groups

Instructors can use Canvas Groups to split a class's students into smaller groups for discussions and assignments. Groups are created in group sets, which can be selected while creating group assignments and group discussions. Students can be assigned to groups automatically, manually, or via self-sign up. Each group gets its own group home page where students can work together with Pages, Discussions, Files, and Collaborations. This article is a collection of technical guides intended to help instructors use Groups in their Canvas courses.
