Faculty: What's New Archives
This book contains information about changes to Moodle.
Cool New Features in 3.3
NEW! Group Members Display
It's always been challenging for students to find out who's in their group. Our new "Group Members" resource creates a page that lists either just the members of a student's group or all of the students in all of the groups.
In addition to choosing whether to show all or some of the groups, you can also choose to reveal email addresses just for other group members or for all students.
Here's what the link looks like on your course page—note that you can name the link however you like (Teams, Groups, etc.).
Here's what Student One sees when the Group Members resource is set to show "Own group" and email addresses are displayed:

If you work with groups in Moodle, you're probably aware that you don't need to be enrolled in a group in order to track your students' activity within their group. Because as a teacher you aren't formally enrolled in any groups, when you post a Group Members resource set for "Own group," you'll see the message shown below when you open the link. Never fear, students are seeing their groups! If a Group Members page is set to "All groups," you will see all of the students listed just as they do.
Faculty can see who is in which group by clicking on the Participants link in the navigation drawer on the left, opening the gear to select Groups and selecting the Overview tab.
