No one wants to be the last person picked for the sports team. And, sometimes, while learning to work with a diverse group is important, as a student you want to have the option to self select who you work with, complete a project with or are basically “stuck” with for a course.
Enter the Group Choice plugin from Nicolas Dunand. He’s created a module (and its updated for 3.0) that gives students the power to select which group they would like to be a part of within a course. In some cases, they can also see who is in which group and have the ability to switch until whatever deadline set by the instructor.
Teachers can also limit the amount of choice students have by restricting group participation and group size.
