The Grouping Tool is a different to other activities in that its role is to modify the behaviour of other tools rather than conduct a learner activity in its own right.
The addition of a Grouping Tool to a sequence allows other activities to run in small group mode, rather than as a whole class activity.
The Grouping Tool has no properties page of it's own, and is configured by using the Properties Inspector.

There are four types of groups:

  • Number of groups;  learners are distributed into a specific number of groups.
  • Number of learners; groups are created to facilitate a particular number of learners in each group.
  • Chosen groups; groups are defined in Monitoring view once the sequence has started.
  • Student selected grouping; students can select from a list of groups created by the author.
