Group enhancements

Blackboard redesigned the group set configuration page to improve performance and allow large courses to be more stable.
  • A search bar now makes it easier to search for specific students and helps filter the display of unassigned students by search criteria. The bar shows predicted results and only unassigned students will be displayed (1).
  • If you have a large module with over a 100 students, you can now choose how many students are displayed per page The maximum number of students that can be displayed is 96 (2).
The short video below demonstrates the new group enhancements.
