Creating Discussion Groups and Group-Restricted Topics for Forums that Already Exist
Sometimes an instructor would like to create discussion groups for a forum that already exists. Here's how:
This document goes over how to create groups and group-restricted topics in discussion forums the instructor has already created in D2L.
First, go to the "edit course" tab in the navigation bar.
Then, select "Groups" from among the forest of icons.
Next, click on "new category."
Enter the properties for the group (Do not check the "setup discussion area" box.)
After saving, go to the discussions tab in the nav bar.
Select the Group and Section Restrictions link
Click on the automatically create restricted topics link.
Select the forum and the groups (the ones you just created) and press the blue "create" button.
