- How'd you do with the challenge…for Chapters four, five and six?…Here's how I solved it.…The first challenge objective was to create…five member groups for a team project.…To get started, I went to the ADMINISTRATION block…on the left-hand side,…opened the Users section,…and clicked Groups.…On the Course Groups page,…I clicked the Auto-create groups button.…If you created groups manually…using the Create group button,…that's okay too.…
I'll click Auto-create groups.…For the naming scheme I left it at Group…and @ to name each group with the word Group and a letter.…For Auto create based on, I selected Members per group…and then entered the number 5…because I want five members in each group.…In the Group members area,…the Select members with role menu is set to Student.…I kept it there.…Right underneath that, I Allocated numbers Randomly,…but you were free to create it alphabetically if you wished.…
I'll click Preview to show my work…and see that I have four groups with five students each.…So I can click Submit.…Then I return to the Course page via the breadcrumbs.…
