I teach several sections of a course that have been merged but would like to have the sections "become groups" for purposes of discussions. How do I go about doing this? Thanks!
A simple way is to create separate discussion forums for each course section. Put the course section numbers right in the discussion titles and let the students know what you're expecting them to do. Supply the course section rosters and make students aware where they are in the course materials. Be lenient the first week or two as students don't always grasp that they need to post in their own course sections. Make sure the current forums are at the top of the page so students (and you) don't have to scroll down much to get to them.
Thanks John! Appreciate it.
