How do I use the Collaborations Index Page?

The Collaborations Index Page allows you to create collaborations for users in your course. You can create new collaborations, edit existing collaborations, and delete collaborations.

If your institution allows students to create collaborations in a course, you can always view any collaboration created in the course. However, students can only view collaborations that have been shared with them.

Note: Depending on your institution's preference, your Collaborations page may not match the images shown in this lesson. However, functionality of the page remains the same.
