Instructors: Enabling discussion for your class group, old groups interface
Class groups are created as announcement-only mailing lists which means only the instructor can send email to the group. If you wish to allow open discussion among students, here's how.
Browse to Google Groups for uni.edu to see a list of the groups you a member of. If you are logged into your UNI Gmail account, you can click on the "Groups" link at the top.
If the URL in the address bar does not specify uni.edu, you are at Google's public group directory which is not maintained by UNI. Click here: http://groups.google.com/a/uni.edu to be sure you are at UNI's Google Groups page.
- Browse to the list of your Google groups, see the explanation above.
- Click on the "manage" link next to a class group.
- Click "Group settings" on the list of options at the right.
- Click the "Access" tab.
- Change the "Who can post messages?" option to be "Members only"
- Click "Save Changes"
If the above screen does not look like yours, you may be using the new interface for Google groups. Click here for instructions using the new interface: https://www.uni.edu/its/support/article/1675
