The steps to follow are:

  1. CREATE EMPTY GROUPS IN THE CLASSROOM
  2. PREPARE THE FILE WITH THE INFORMATION OF THE GROUPS
  3. UPLOAD THE FILE TO THE CLASSROOM
1. CREATION OF EMPTY GROUPS

You will first need to create the number of (empty) groups you need:

2. PREPARATION OF THE FILE WITH THE INFORMATION OF THE GROUPS

Prepare the file that will be used to carry out the massive load. this file must have the extension “.csvseparated by ;.

The file must have 4 fields, each of which will be a column:

  • first field – NAME of the student,
  • second field – SURNAME,
  • third field – NIU and
  • the forth, the NAME OF THE GROUP assigned (and that you have previously created empty in the classroom).

NOTE: The information in the first three columns can be obtained by accessing Sigma and downloading or exporting the student lists.

Finally, from excel, save the file as a document in CSV (delimited per comes) (*.csv) format.
