Thank you for your response. Unfortunately the ML created the groups directly in WebPA, rather than in Blackboard. I have replicated the same scenario in a test course, and again there seems to be no link between the WebPA instance you access via Course Tools and a link created in a content area. I think we'll need to set the groups up again from scratch unfortunately, unless any other suggestions come to light.
