    It is possible to use the module together with « Group Choice » to get some extra options for students.

    There is no Download for Moodle 2.2 or 2.3. Are there some problems with these new versions?
    What is the difference to "Group Choice" ( Wouldn´t it be good to combine these to plugins?
    Thanks for your answers!

    Is this plugin still being maintained? There have been no updates since Oct. 2011. We currently use this plugin in our 2.1.4 system, but are upgrading to 2.4.4 before the end of the summer and wondering if there are plans to update the plugin for use with 2.4.
    Thank you! Ryan

    in the old version (1.9), students could take down the group without problems. But in version 2.0 ( can not find the way for a student to take down the group.

    Could you help me with this problem?

    Thanks for everything.

    I just installed this plugin in Moodle 2.6. When I turn editing on while viewing a course, I get the following message:

    The module groupselect does not define the standard capability mod/groupselect:addinstance
    •line 2229 of /course/lib.php: call to debugging()
    •line 1275 of /course/lib.php: call to course_allowed_module()

    •line 280 of /course/view.php: call to require()

    Any idea how I might fix this?

    Our faculty really like this plugin. We are running it without problems on 2.4 and are hoping it will still work on 2.5.

    This is a very useful plugin and we hope it won't be abandoned -- no updates since 2.1! (2011)

    this is a nice plugin. I updated the code to work on 2.7 (should work on 2.6 too!).
    It is available at github:

    Hope you like!
