Making the group discussions available in the course menu
If you have created “Random Enroll” or “Manual Enroll” groups, students will be able to see the links to their groups and the group discussions at the bottom of the Course Menu. You don’t need to do anything to make them available.
If you have created “Self-Enroll” groups, you will need to add a menu link for “Groups” so that students can access the Sign Up button to enroll themselves to groups. In the Course Menu of your course page, in the action bar, click on the plus icon, then click on “Tool Link”. Name your link “Groups”, then select “Groups” in the Type drop-down. Make the link available to users and click “Submit”. –BEEP-- Does the menu look good? If not, use the double arrow icon in the action bar to reorder the links as you see fit. --BEEP-- Now, click on the newly created link to see the Sign Up button under each of the groups. Once they are enrolled into a group, they will be able to see the links to their groups and the group discussions at the bottom of the Course Menu.
