Spring Ahead with a quick tip from each!

After clicking on the Groups tab, select My Groups screen right and then the Reorder Groups button also screen right. The same option has been available for Courses as well, so if you have not yet, you can affect the same change there, too.
As always, please don't hesitate to reach out for additional support and information I can offer on these and all technology and learning focus areas!  Enjoy the weekend...Nick
