Yesterday I went back and re-did per your suggestion again. I also found an enrollment glitch going on from our user database to Moodle sync. I enrolled myself manually in the course as I am also a Moodle administrator. Today so far is the first day this issue did not come up again.
I am thinking the enrollment glitch was somehow taking me out of the course and re-enrolling me and perhaps Moodle saw no instructor and it hid the activity.......just an explanation to myself.
