Working on team projects

In some courses, you are assigned activities or projects that require working in small groups. Course staff will create topics for you to choose from. You choose a topic that interests you, and then join or create a team with other learners who also want to work on that topic together.

If your course uses teams, there is a Teams page where you can see the list of topics created by the course team, with topic descriptions.

To Browse Topics and Find a Team to Join

  1. In the course, select the Teams page.
  2. Select the Browse tab.
  3. On the Browse page, view the list of available topics. You can sort the topics alphabetically by name, or by the team count in each topic.
  4. When you have found a topic you are interested in, select the arrow button to see the teams that exist in that topic. You can sort by teams that showed the most recent activity, or by teams with the most open slots. You can also use keywords to search for teams within a topic. Each team’s name and description are shown, as well as the number of team members, letting you know whether there is space for you to join.
  5. To get a better sense of a team’s members, discussion, and communications, select View for a team. On the Team Details page, you can browse the team’s discussion posts, but you cannot participate unless you are a member of the team.

Note: You can navigate from the Team Details page back to the list of teams in a topic or back to the list of all topics using the breadcrumb links at the top of the page.
