group mechanism applicable to broader usage

We are now seeing teachers forming groups on nanoHUB. They let students into the group and they want to share resources with them.

One teacher said that she wanted to share a tool session with everyone in the group. Well, that means now typing all the nanoHUB logins into the share filed. Or have that list ready for copy/paste.

We have similar issues when we want to schedule conference calls through breeze.

I think we should consider the benefits and possibilities and workload involved with expanding what we can do with groups:

What if by default when someone creates a group, called “ECE305_Purdue”, that we automatically maintain an alias to “alias_ECE305_Purdue” or “group_ECE305_Purdue” to enable things like: 1) sharing a session 2) notifying members of events 3) inviting members to online meetings X) else?….

    I see this as a critical item for teacher engagement and use of this in the class room. We may need to consider details upon integration with blackboard etc.

    I believe we have a committment from John Campbell for help from the TLT group.

    Gerhard,

    Are you imagining a way to share a tool session(or whatever) by entering a group alias and it in turn inviting all users in that group?

      Yes, indeed – that had been a request from a faculty member. She also wants to see usage statistics, possibly anonymized to make sure she knows when people do the homework. G
