Dr. Tester created four groups allowing each group to have a Group Discussion Board and Group Email.
Many of the tools available in NYU Classes are ‘group-centric’. Dr. Tester can tailor a group’s learning based on choices she makes when setting up or using different tools. For example, she can assign a group reading materials, give different assignments, tests or the same assignment with different due dates to each group, or allow one group to contribute to a forum while other groups can only view the forum. She can also send messages, post announcements, and add calendar items to selected groups.

NYU Classes understands ‘sections’ (as created by records from the registrar — and if added to the particular course site). For example, TAs associated with a particular section might see content available to all sections, but only see the Gradebook for students in their assigned ‘sections.’
