How do I work with a group in Blackboard?

1. If your instructor has enrolled you into a group, you should see an item at the bottom of your left hand menu bar titled My Groups. Click here to view your group tools.


2. If your instructor has instructed you to enroll yourself in a group, there should be a Groups area either in the left hand menu bar, or a Groups link in one of the content areas such as Course Documents (it may be called something else besides “Groups” – consult your instructor for the exact name and location of the link). There should be a list of groups to sign up for. Click the Sign Up button to enroll yourself into that group.  If you are having trouble locating the Groups area, consult with your instructor.

For a more in-depth look at this process, please consult the Knowledge Base entry on Groups.
