How do I assign a student leader to a group?

You can assign a student group leader to help manage a group within your course. You can assign group leaders automatically or manually. When students are assigned to be a group leader, they can manage members of the group and edit the group name. However, they cannot change the number of members in the group.

Students do not receive any notification that they have been added as a group leader, but they can manage groups directly from the Groups page. Access is also allowed from their Courses & Groups drop-down menu.

Note: If an assigned group leader drops out of the course, you will have to select a new group leader only if the group leader was assigned manually. If you automatically assigned a group leader as part of creating a group set, Canvas will automatically assign another leader to the group.
