Request a Community Group

Community Groups are LEARN spaces that are not used in conjunction with a specific Undergraduate or Graduate level course. Instead, their content and membership is maintained by the Group Manager in the course.

To request a Community Group, please fill out the form. You will be asked the following questions.

  • Desired name of the Community Group

  • Which department is the Community Group for?

  • What is the purpose of the course?

  • Who will be the target audience? Staff, faculty, or students?

  • Is the target audience UW users?

  • Who will be the sponsor of the Community Group?

  • What LEARN elements will be used (discussions, quizzes, surveys, dropboxes, etc.)?

  • How will students be added to the course? Self-enrolment or by a Group Manager?

  • Will you be tracking course completions?

  • If completion tracking is required, where will the completion be sent?
