Our students can't see the people button and I am wondering where that setting is in the admin panel. I can't see to find it.
There are two possibilities, but the first is probably the more likely of the two. There is a permission for Course Roles called "Users - view list" that allows users to view the People page in course navigation. If this is disabled for the Student role, students will not be able to view the People page. The second possibility is that the course navigation option has been disabled or hidden, as described in this lesson: How do I manage Course Navigation links?. I hope that helps!
