First of all
I am really new to Moodle and have volunteered to be the Moodle Administrator for a small non-profit group as I was one of the few there with a software background. So if I am posting in the wrong forum .... bare with me please.
I have googled extensively and not found any Forum Threads similar to my issue.
So here is the situation. We recently set up a course and have been learning by doing. There are a dozen 'teachers' aka the members of the non-profit and a couple of hundred 'students' those who are using the multi-media trainings provided. As all the trainings share elements and the majority of users are super non-computer literate, we have chosen a flat course structure instead of multiple courses.
Its probably not the most standard Moodle setup but the easiest for us to do at the moment as we need a complete overview from all students graded at all time from multiple teachers who should have the ability to add some new sections as needed.
We hit a hurdle some weeks ago which we were able to resolve based upon reading forum posts (very useful those). It concerned the #52 Section Limitation. Which we have addressed and set to #100. I mention this as it 'feels' very similar the problem we are having.
We are able to create new topics. We are able to add activities to all topics (new and old). With the exception of asignments. We have seemed to reach a limit of assignments where no new assignments can be created. Thru usability testing we have discovered that if we delete an assignment from any of the sections we can add an assignment there or somewhere else. But we can not add a second one (aka seems like we have reached a limit) Even though all the other activity additions (chat database forum etc) work just fine and are not limited in any fashion.
QUESTION: Does this seem reasonable that this is a similar issue to the Maximum Number of Sections poblem that we had? If so what is the resolution?
We are running are running 3.6 (Build: 20181203) and the course format is a Topics Format with default mySQL database backend. The Moodle Site is hosted on a third party server where we have admin access.
Thanks in advance to any support
