- How to restrict access to an activity using Groups
You can enable Groups and Groupings at the unit level (and separately in the activity settings). Groups allow you to restrict access to an activity or resource based on the membership of a Group, as well as by other parameters you select. If you enable Groups at the unit level, then the default setting for every activity in your unit will default to the Group mode you select.
For example, if within your unit settings you have selected 'No groups' from the dropdown menu next to Group mode:
Then in every activity within your LEO unit the Group submission settings will default to 'No':
Similarly, if you enable Groups in the settings of your unit (by choosing the 'Separate groups' or 'Visible groups' options as the Group mode, for example), the 'Students submit in groups' setting in the image above would default to 'Yes'. Additionally, you would also be able to view users in Grades according to the Group they are a member of. This is particularly useful for managing large cohorts with multiple tutorial groups.
With 'Separate groups' selected, a dropdown will appear in that allows you to view all users, or just the users in a chosen group:
If you click the checkbox for 'Force group mode' then the group mode is automatically applied to every group in the unit, Group mode settings for each activity will be ignored if this option is enabled.
You are able to select the default grouping for your activities and resources from the options provided.
Check the box next to 'Integrate with Tutorial direct if you want groups to be automatically created by Tutorial Direct.
Check the box next to 'Allow users to join more than one sign up group' if you want to allow a user to be a member of multiple sign-up groups at the same time.
