With the group formation activity you can let learners submit work, review, and reflect on received feedback as part of a group.

How it works

You can decide if learners are allowed to create their groups themselves or if the instructor creates groups beforehand. When the groups are created, the first learner who is ready to submit will submit on behalf of the group.


The activity is completed when learners created their group or when an instructor has created groups on behalf of learners.

What activities can connect to the group formation activity

  • Submission (submit as a group)

  • Peer review (review the work of other learners as a group)

  • Reflection activity (reflect on your received feedback as a group)

How to set up the group formation activity

  • To add a new group formation activity to your course, select 'add activities & flows'.

  • Give your group formation activity a title and a description.

  • Decide if learners should create the groups themselves or if the instructor will create the groups

  • If you've not done so yet, add a submission activity to your course that will be connected to the group formation activity.

  • Go to the settings tab of the submission activity

  • Enable group submission

  • Select inherit groups from the group formation you just created.

  • Alternatively, you can turn things around. Start with adding a submission activity, enable group submission, and select Create & inherit from new group formation activity.
