I'd like to use groups in some of my courses and restrict the course members that a person sees on the Participants list to just members of that user's group.
The reason for this is that we will often need to run multiple sections of a course due to high enrollments and use different instructors for each section. Rather than doing that, we'd like to be able to enroll everyone, students and teaching staff, in to one course and group them out. The problem here is that we don't want the students from one group to be able to see the students and teaching staff from another group, but still be able to see the members of their own group in the participants list.
We're using Moodle 2.6 and any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
