MOOCs: Allow automatic distribution of all users in groups
In the groups tool, create a feature by which you can have 5000 users subscribed to your course, then decide the size of your groups and automatically create X groups of Y users.
For example, an additional icon in the actions bar that says "Auto creation". When clicking the icon, you get to a page that asks you how many seats there should be per group, and explains that it will automatically create the groups and fill them with distinct users, to cover the complete users base of the whole course.
Later, the same feature could be used just to update the groups tool to include all new users in new groups.
This is particularly useful in the context of MOOCs, where spreading users into more than 100 groups is simply impractical, while the server can do that for us with very little coding.

Would it be possible to have this feature in sessions please, as this is the typical use: on a specific date you have x sites and you know that in the month you'll have to perform y times your webinar during the month...
This could even be related to agenda (diary)...
