Introduction

Students and staff at Queen Mary can easily set up private or public groups within QMplus Hub. A QMplus Hub group has a configurable homepage and a number of tools available to group participants including forums, webpages, blogs and a shared files area. Groups can also be a useful way to share page templates and run class projects.

Reasons why you might set-up a group on QMplus Hub:

  • to share files and documents in group tasks easily
  • keep all group work and university work on one platform
  • keep track of group tasks evidencing the input of all group members
  • create or join common interest groups
  • create a page for your club or society
  • to allow students to share work from their own portfolio with their tutor;
  • to enable students to collaborate on a specific project who might only want to share information amongst themselves rather than the whole class
  • to develop, maintain or grow a community within your school, faculty or across QMUL e.g. Cycling or Learning technologies
  • to share a page template created for an assessment with a group of students.
