One way to present a class or learning space to users is to use a ‘Group Dashboard’
When someone clicks on a group that is set as a group dashboard, they are taken to a page with dashboard panels that show activity in that group , for example homework, tasks, blog posts and recent files that have been added for that group.
There is also an editable space at the top of the page for the group manager (teacher) to add any content they wish. This can be changed and updated as often as needed.
To change a group to use the group dashboard:
- Click on the group options menu
- Choose ‘Manage’ > ‘Settings’
- Under ‘Advanced options’ > ‘Group portal’ choose ‘Group dashboard’
