Groups in Moodle are usually populated by program staff.

There are two approaches to populating groups:

Adding Participants To A Group: select a group from a list of groups and add participants to the group. If you're working with a list of groups this may be the best method.

Adding Groups To Participants: select a participant from a list of participants and add group/s to that participant. If you're working with a list of participants this may be the best method.

Adding Participants To A Group

Click on Participants in the Navigation drawer.
