How do I create a Group?
How do I add students to Groups?
There are a number of ways to set up your groups. You can even have Pilot create and associate discussions and dropbox folders when you create your groups.
What are the basics of Pilot Groups?
Pilot can automatically assign students to groups in a number of ways. You can also assign students to groups manually. That’s especially handy when you want a student to participate in more than one group.
