I have a strange problem. I can enroll students in a course, and I can see them listed as enrolled when I click on Course administration > Users > Enrolled Users. However none of these students show up as participants for the course. When I click on "partcipants" in the People block, all I see is All participants: 0. Am I missing something here? Shouldn't an enrolled student show up as a participant?
Could the above issue be the reason why my students can not see the Topics in my course? I have made the topics visible and students can see them if I change permissions to View courses without participation
