As part of the
process, many courses with multiple sections
have had only one course created. Students are automatically
enrolled in the course with the lowest section number.
For example, if you are teaching BIOL100, section 0101, but
are also teaching sections 0201, 0301, 0401, and 0501, the
students enrolled in these sections are all enrolled in 0101.
As an instructor
teaching multiple sections, dividing students by section can
be extremely convenient. Rather than updating five or six
different sections, an instructor will only have to update
one section with content. In this case, the Groups
feature in Blackboard may be the solution for you.
This function is
very effective whether you have numerous sections within your
course or if you simply want to divide your class up into
smaller groups for specialized assignments.
