Groups can be used for collaboration among users as they offer the possibilities to:
- discuss topics in forums
- create and edit pages and collections together
- share files
- share pages
- submit pages for assessment / feedback
Groups can be created by every user, staff or administrators only. The site administrator decides that in Administration → Configure site → Group settings.
The Groups menu has a number of sub menus:
- My groups: Displays the groups that you administer or in which you are a member. You can create new groups from here if you have the appropriate rights.
- Find groups: Lists all groups in the system that you can view and allows you to join or request membership in them if groups allow that.
- My friends: Displays your friends and gives you easy access to their profile pages.
- Find people: Search for users in Mahara that you may wish to add to your friends list or whom you want to contact.
- Shared pages: Lists the pages that you have permission to view.
- Topics: Shows the latest discussion topics in your groups.
