Include course name in Canvas group names

January 3, 2018

Students see a ‘Group’ link in the red global menu. When they click it, they see the name of every class group they have been assigned to. There is no automatic course identifier on group names. If a student is in Group 1 in two separate courses, they won’t know which group is for which course until they click and actually enter the course. Save your students some confusion by including the course name in the group name. For example: Group 1 (HDFS 110), or Team Red (FSHN 367).
