How to Create Self Sign-up Groups

Purpose: Instructors can set up groups in Canvas which students will join, or self sign-up, on their own. The “Self Sign-up” ability can be turned on or off manually by instructors and limits to members in a group can also be preset to create small groups.

In order to use this feature, please remember to: 1) Keep the “People” link available to students, 2) Close the self-enroll ability manually to prevent member changes in the middle of project times, and 3) Provide instructions to students on how to self enroll into their groups.
