Synchronize student groups within courses using the Synchronize groups plugin #MoodlePlugins

Synchronize groups plugin allows you to synchronize the students groups and group members within groups courses with just a single click.

Synchronizing users among multiple courses can be handy if you setup some groups in one of your course and needs to implement the same groups in other courses also.

The thing which is good with this plugin is that it makes sure that only users that are already enrolled are added as group members.
