In AsULearn, faculty can create assignments where students work in groups and each group makes an assignment submission. For example, students in a group can submit one file that represents their joint work. Any group member can download, modify, and re-upload a file, or edit a text entry. For faculty, grading one student within the ggroup submissions (any) student's group submission will automatically replicate that grade and feedback to all that group's members.
