Groups

Groups are like a smaller version of your course and are used as a collaborative tool where students can work together on group projects and assignments.

As an instructor, use groups to:

  • Set up student group configurations at the course level for assignments and in-class work, both graded and ungraded.

  • Facilitate semester-long projects so that students can communicate and iterate on documents together.

  • Facilitate faculty professional development and institutional committees or activities.

  • Facilitate student-run study groups within courses or at the account level.

Sections

Sections in Canvas are used to segment the class list for administrative purposes, typically based on teaching fellow assignment or meeting time.

Once you create sections, you can: 

  • Create varied due dates for assignments by section.

  • Filter the Gradebook by section.

  • Filter the SpeedGrader™ by section when grading student work.

  • View section assignments for students on the People page.


You can create and edit sections using the Manage Sections Tool.


Sections in Canvas are used to segment the class, typically based on their teaching fellows or meeting times. Groups, on the other hand, are used as a collaborative tool for students to work on group projects and assignments.
