This article outlines the process of creating Group Lockers. Group Lockers provide group members a centralized place to store their files in the learning environment. All members of a group, and the instructor, will have access to group files. The Group Locker tool is limited to about 20 MB of storage.

If you have not already done so, create the desired groups. For more information on creating groups, see the Group Setup article.

Creating Group Lockers

In order to create Group Lockers, the instructor must enable the Locker work space during Group setup. If you did not enable the locker work space during setup, navigate to the Groups tool ("Communications > Groups") and click “Edit Category” for the group category.

Scroll to “Additional Options” at the bottom of the screen and check the box to “Set up lockers.”

Accessing Group Lockers

Navigate to the Locker tool by clicking “Resources” > "Locker" in the course navigation menu. Navigate to the “Group Lockers” tab at the top of the screen and select a group locker to view the contents.

You can view and download file submitted by group members. You can also upload or create a file for the group and email group members.
