Groups for Teachers and TAs, not students ?

Jump to solution

I’m part of a very large course that has a team of 18 TAs marking the same assignment. I’d like to create a Group so that they can discuss issues, collate common feedback, share exemplars, and so on. Is it possible to create Groups or Discussions that can only been seen by TAs and not students?

You could make a discussion and never publish it, that way its only visible to TA's. The TA's could still post in it like any other discussion.

You could also make a group that has 0 students enrolled in it in the course. This would give you a separate announcements, files, and discussions area. Although you can't enroll non-students in a group like this, TA's can already visit a group page without an invitation. Turn off the ability to self-enroll, and students won't be able to fiddle with the group at all.
