Students cannot access the discussion forums
Are your students getting this error when trying to work on their forums:
”You are not able to create a discussion because you are not a member of any group."
This is a common user error we see in our platform. Please notice this is not a technical issue, but a the result of a setting wrongfully enabled on your course shell.
To fix it, follow these steps:
- Click on the Admin (cog) button, on the far top-right corner of your course screen.
- Select the Edit Settings option.
- On the right side of the Edit course settings screen, go to Groups.
- Change the Groups mode option to No groups. Then set the Force Group Mode option to Yes.
After you do this, please do not forget to save your changes.
