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 un small group mode, rather than as a whole class activity.
The Groupint Tool has no properties page of it's own, and is configured by using the Properties Inspector.

There are three 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.

Grouping Sequence Errors

A common mistake is to set an activity to use a Grouping Tool before the Grouping Tool has occurred in the sequence.
If you do this, it will result in an error when you try and run your sequence. Make sure that no activities in your sequence use a Grouping Tool before the Tool appears in the sequence.
