Creating groups in Laulima

Certain tools in Laulima are group-aware (capable of recognizing groups) so groups can be assigned in the settings area. With groups, access to certain aspects or areas can be restricted to group members. Some tools that are group aware:

Discussion board and mail tools
Tests & Quizzes
