Opportunities to collaborate with a group
There are three main ways you can currently collaborate with your group. Notice the icons at the top to create a meeting, upload a document, and share your work.
1. Creating a Group Meeting
We recommend sharing a few times and dates over the messaging board first to find a good time to meet. When setting up the Group Meeting, you can set the meeting title, goal, location (meeting URL), and meeting time.
Once creating the meeting, the direct link to the meeting details will display in the group space. And all group members will receive a notification that the meeting has been created.
Meetings will be shown in your timezone. (Group members in different timezones will automatically see the meeting time adjusted to their timezone)
2. Posting on the Group Wall / Uploading a Document
You can write posts using the Rich Text Editor window and post to the group wall. These posts are visible by all members of the group, and are visible to all members of the course if the group is public.
Commenting on other posts on the group wall
You can participate in ongoing conversations using the "Comment" button shown next to a conversation thread.
Uploading documents with your group
You may share documents on your group's wall with the "Upload a Document" icon. You may upload a file from your computer, Google Drive, as well as leave a description.
3. Sharing your work with your group
Lastly, for any recent submissions in the course - you have the option to share them with your group for feedback and thoughts.
