I am struggling to find a way to enroll students in various bimesters. i have made the following course configuration and would appreciate any feedback on whether this is the appropriate configuration.
I have a 16 month course, divided into 8 bimesters and would require all students to be enrolled in this course and also in different bimesters within the course.
I have setup a course with 8 topics ( 8 bimesters ). Created a cohort with all enrolled students and then created 8 groups, one group per bimester. Finally, i added the students of each bimester to the corresponding bimester.
when i tried to linking the group to the corresponding semester, i got stuck when a particular group has access to various bimesters. For example, students belonging to bimester 6 ( group ) should be able to access the content of their previous lessons in bimester 1 to 5. Those in bimester 4, should also be able to access bimester 1,2 and 3, and so on.
When i use the restrict access feature, i can add up to 5 or 6 restrictions by bimester, they all appear in the admin view, but some are missing in the student view and student cannot access some bimesters although configured to allow access.
Can someone advise if i am missing something or there is a better to configure such setup ?
Also, is there a way to have a student enrolled automatically into a course and topic or group ?
Your feedback would be very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance
