On your course Groups page, point to CREATE in the upper left.

You will need to decide whether you are creating a single group, or a set of two or more groups with the same tool availability but different enrollment. 

Self-Enroll: Students add themselves to a group.

Random Enroll: The instructor select a number of groups (or ideal number of group members) and Blackboard assigns the enrollment (available when creating group sets only).

Manual Enroll: The instructor selects which students are members of which group.

After making your selection you will be forwarded to the Group Properties page.

On your course Groups page, click the NEW GROUP SET button in the upper right.
