Enable Groups in Moodle

This is part of the article on Moodle Groups and Participants/Enrollments.

Enter the course you want to use Groups in.

Expand the Actions Menu (Gear Icon) in the top-right corner of the page.

Select the Edit Settings option.

Scroll down to and expand the Groups section.

Set Group mode to your choice:

  • Separate groups: Each group member can only see their own group, others are invisible
  • Visible groups: Each group member works in their own group, but can also see other groups

Set Force group mode to No. (This will let you choose what activities are separated into groups)

OPTIONAL: Set Default grouping to the grouping containing all your separate groups if you plan to use the same groups over the entire course.

Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the Save and display button.
