Working on and handing in a group task in FELIX (group task element)

FELIX 00-036

What you need to know

In FELIX, lecturers can assign tasks to groups via the group task module or enable submissions.
If you find this icon in the course menu this is a group task module.

Lecturers can configure group task element very differently with various process steps.
For example, lecturers can ...

- set assignments
- request revisions
- post sample solutions
- provide feedback
- provide a grade

As a group, you can create and edit files together in this course element, but only one person can submit a group assignment.

The course element can be subscribed to in order to be informed of any feedback provided by the lecturer (see Helpcard Internal link opens in a new window:20-070).

What you have to do

  1. You can view the respective group via "Open group".
    If no further configurations have been made by the lecturers, by default you will not be able to see who belongs to your group at this point. Other tools (such as forum, folder, calendar) can also be configured by your lecturers if required.
    Close the group view by clicking on the red cross.

  2. If available, and in consultation with your group, select one (of several, if applicable) task(s) by clicking on "Select" or "Select and edit".

    • The task will be assigned to you and you will receive an email confirmation.

    • The "Select and edit" option opens a new tab with the selected template.

  3. Depending on the configuration in the "Submission" section you can now:

    ... create a new document (html, Word, Excel, PowerPoint) and/or
    ... edit a selected template or created Office files (also synchronously together) and/or
    ... upload a document

    • When you upload a document, select the appropriate document and click "Save".

    • When you create a document, select the desired file format, assign a title, and click "Create".
      The file opens in a new tab.
      For Office files, automatic saving is pre-set.

    • You can edit an Office template or a document you created in Office format by clicking on the pencil icon to the left of the trash.
      If you see an eye icon there instead of a pencil, the file is in a non-editable format.

    • As a rule, you can upload and delete as many files as you want.
      If you can upload only one file, then the upload was limited by the lecturer.

  4. You must submit the file by pressing "Final submission". Then confirm the system message for this.

    • The file cannot be edited afterwards.

    • Only one group member can submit the file. If necessary, delete (in consultation with other group members) files that you do not want to submit by clicking on the trash can.

    • Depending on the configuration of the course element, the process ends at this point.
      You may also receive feedback and/or a grade.

  5. Your assignment may now be in the "Return and Feedback" phase, and is thus being reviewed by the lecturer.

    • If your task is accepted, feedback may be displayed. You may have to click open the "Return and feedback" step for this.

    • If your task is rejected for editing, this is displayed in the course element. You can repeat step 2 in the "Revision" section and upload a revised file with "Submit revision".

  6. In the Grading section - if available - you may receive a grade such as "Pass" or a personal comment.

  7. Depending on how the task has been configured, after successful submission (and the Return and Feedback substep, if applicable), you may also be given a sample solution.
