Groups and Groups of Teachers in a Course.
Testing moodle 1.8 in English and Dutch with those speakers, users and administrators.....
If you force groups in course, and you have many groups of students all allocated to a separate tutor group in that course (i.e 50 graduating students in about 8 tutor goups with different teachers), these issues apply:
You can put NONE of the teachers in moodle groups, and they can post in all group forums areas and see all students papers for marking in the assignment module.
BUT if you want to add the teachers to a separate moodle group (for internal discussion for instance), then you will have to make the tutor a member of the moodle group in which he is tutor (which means he is in the list of students to be marked in an assignment) :- otherwise he will only see his fellow teacher (as if they were students) in the assignments.
There used to be a “Teacher Forum automatically added when you made a course – which I often got rid of as well! - but probabbly would suit this requirement.
I don’t think this is a bug, just a wish list thing, but you never know. maybe someone knows better. I might be missing something.
By the way – thanks for all the bug resolutions. Testing in an ongoing “production” environment can sometimes be “testing” in itself, especially when there are a couple of hundred of people who don’t understand why something “doesn’t work like it did”!! J
1.8 is looking good.
