How do I add groups in a group set in an account?

Creating groups at the account-level is similar to viewing groups at the course-level. The groups created at the account-level will still show up in the Groups Menu in Global Navigation. You can also create groups at the sub-account level.

Notes:

  • Only admins and sub-account admins can create group sets.
  • Setting up groups for the purposes of collaboration is better handled through building courses or groups under the appropriate sub-account level, since you can't assign non-admins to sub-accounts.
