In a course with four teachers, each teacher wants to have a forum of their own for private communications with selected students. The teachers do not want their colleagues to read what is going on in their private forum.
My solution is:
- I create four forums, one for each teacher.
- For each forum:
- Via Administration / Permissions I prevent the teacher role to do whatever with the forum. As a consequence none of them can do anything with the forum anymore.
- Via Administration / Locally assigned roles I assign the nonediting teacher role to the single teacher who should have access.
It works (as long as teachers do not cheat the system by making themselves non-editing teacher of the course).
My question is:
- Is there a more elegant way to handle this case?
