I am thinking about using Organic Groups for course management in an academic context.
Initially I was going to create an OG group per course e.g. Physics 101. However if the users change per semester this could become tricky to manage...
There are 2 options I can think of:
- Create a new group each semester e.g “Physics 101 – Semester 1, 2013”
- But would soon end up with 1000’s of groups.
- Somehow archive the data, clear down the group and re-enrol the next class each semester
- I'm unsure how we could effectively do the archival while keeping the data available, and it seems like it would become a convoluted process
I would love to know how other users of OG handle this type of problem?
Is there any online material that would help me learn how to use OG in this way?
Thanks for your help in advance!
