Group Hierarchy & Sub Groups
I’m not sure if this is possible, but can groups be members of groups?
For example I’m thinking of all first year students being in the “1st Year” group, but they are also members of their homeroom groups and different class groups. So if I upload an assignment for all first year students I can put it on the first year blog, or in the first year group documents and all first year students would be notified. If I wanted to send an assignment to the first year science students, then I would do the same except to the first year science group. Of course I could populate each group individually, but with hundreds or thousands of students that would be a lot of work and open to error.
A related question is is there a way to mass upload and populate users and groups?
I’m seeing wpmu with buddypress gaining more and more of the functionality to become a full blown LMS (learning management system) similar to Moodle, but with a much more flexible structure, and a powerful group structure would help this happen.
