Canvas Groups

Posted by Jackie Myers Employee Nov 6, 2018

"Groups are for collaboration, sections are for differentiation"



Understanding the analogy:

  • Each cell phone represents a group set.
  • The group set holds all of the groups (folders) and students/participants (apps). 
  • You can't have folders for your apps without your cell phone - You can't have groups without a group set.
  • Each app can only belong to one folder - each student can only belong to one group within that group set.
  • Apps don't have to be in a folder - students/participants don't have to belong to a group. 
  • Apps can be arranged differently on a different cell phone - groups can be arranged differently in a different group set.
