Group submission - Assignment

The "assignment in groups" activity allows students to submit files on the course website in predefined groups.

  • The lecturer can give a grade and feedback to the entire group.

  • Each student sees the submission and feedback of his group only.

Before starting, the submission settings must be defined in groups, before the assignment submission date. Once students have started submitting (even if in "Draft" mode), it will not be possible to set it.
