I am trying to set up a course as the administrator and would like to have the ability for multiple teachers to access the course and use it for their own students. Is this possible?
I'm not sure what you mean by users section - if you mean participants or online users then I'm not sure you can filter them (open to correction)but you could hide the block so nobody could see anyone.
I have a similar question about multiple teachers. We would like to set up a portal where we would have a multiple teachers having their own courses. Students of course could attend any course from any teacher. We would like the audience to see all teachers in the front page and selecting either one would dive into his courses. I was trying to play with grouping but could not get this working. Setting anything up is quite complicated in Moodle. One has to be almost an IT guy....So maybe that is my problem.
Wonder if this possible to set it up somehow in moodle.
You can create a course category and name it with teacher names (something courses from X teacher) then further teacher can create his courses under this by adding a new course.
Thank you Sakshi! That is a great idea! I guess it is only left to make it look nice maybe re-arranging things but I can work with a web designer on that. Thanks again.
You say "(...)if a teacher wants to assign something merely to their own class and not have the other teachers' classes using it (or seeing it)"
I'm using release 2.9.1+ (build 20150813) and I have a situation of a course with multiple teachers for the same students, each teacher taking care of all students in a different period of time. The requirement I have is that each teacher can see only the assignments of his/her own subject. They are not supposed to see (or change) other teachers' assignments files sent by the same students.
I created a group for the students and another for a modules' specific teacher. With both of them I created a grouping. Configuring the assignment, I set up detached groups and selected the grouping I created. When I try to access this assignment as different teacher, I still see available the link to check files sent by students.
What can be wrong?
What If a teacher creates a course and then an other teacher asks to join in that course as Teacher. How to do that. Can the course teacher adds an other teacher in same course ans assigns the role of teacher to an other teacher ?
Editing teachers cannot by default assign the editing teacher role to others in their course (unless admin has specifically allowed them to do assign this role) so they would need to ask the admin to enrol the second teacher as a teacher into the course.
