You can use the LEA wiki to foster collaborative working between the students, e.g. storing knowledge or taking the minutes of lessons together. As standard each course member is able to add new content to the wiki or to edit its existing content. Therefore it is suitable for collecting information on specific topics.
A group in LEA is a separate area, which can only be accessed by a specific sub-group of course members. You can assign your students to groups and provide them with a virtual working area of their own, e.g. to collaborate on certain exercises.
