The students can view the members of each group before making a choice, and (if the teacher allows it) change their selected group until the deadline. They can alswo create their own public or private group protected with a key. Other student can contact the group creator for asking the registration Key. Each group creator can add informations about his group a description, a video or an image. A map with the group's members location will also be display in a group Detail page.
