Is there a good reason for teachers to be able to see and edit course permissions even if it's for roles lesser than their own? I'm tempted to turn it off. It just seems like something that would confuse teachers.
Just one example: Teacher wants to make a particular student a moderator in one forum (which you can do my assigning the non-editing teacher role in the Forum).
Thanks Tim. I've only just introduced Moodle to my school, and I'm trying to work out ways to make everything a little less complex. I'm not using the Boost Theme (which I'm having regrets about) instead using the Lambda Theme (and I wont be able to change it now for at least a year), so my Course Menu includes:
all of which confuses completely new users. Is there a way to hide those options so that only the Managers at Category level can see them.
"and I'm trying to work out ways to make everything a little less complex."
A worthy goal
Agreeing with decreasing complexity! Or perceived complexity, anyway.
said, an example from K-12 - using the Lightbox gallery plugin.
Normally, photos can only be added by a teacher. If the teacher gives
two students teacher rights to one instance of that activity, they
become the curators for that collection. So, instead of being careful to
take a picture of every student doing something interesting on the
field trip, the two students are given that responsibility.
But now that I read what I wrote - I’m not sure I’m addressing the original post. You can do what I describe with the “Assign roles” item in an activity’s edit menu.
