          I have found something similar (see http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=58606 )

          On upgrade from 1.6.3, my courses show a long list of course creators who are not associated with those courses, some labelled as students.

          I have found that disabling the 'Update course settings' capability for course creators fixes the problem of having many course creators appear as members of all courses.

          Hi Guys,

          In 1.7, anyone with moodle/course:update capability would show up on the course description area. To help with this problem we added 2 extra features in 1.8.

          1) Assignment could be hidden. This prevents users with this hidden assignment showing up at the course participants page and on the course description area for users without the capability to view hidden assignments.

          2) There is now a new global setting under appearance to determine what roles is displayed on the course description area. The order of the roles displayed is the same as the sort order of your roles (customizable). This setting is default to "Teacher".

          Cheers,

          Yu

          Hi,

          Wil it be possible to specify the order in which "teachers" are displayed within the role ordering (or would appear if they were visible). There may by a hierarchy to be reflected and I noticed that the message displayed when the enrolment key is requested always lists the first named teacher.

          Ray, I'm looking for this feature too since the first teacher listed is the teacher that shows up when the student is required to supply the enrolment ky.

          Reopening this issue to investigate whether the two extra features in 1.8 mentioned by Yu may be back-ported into 1.7.2. If not, then documentation is needed.

          Just a quick thought on this as it's under new consideration. The term "hidden assignments" (in my mind at least) immediately makes me think initially of assignment activities. I think another term may make this concept easier to understand at outset. My suggestion:

          hidden participant

          Changes have been backported into 1.7. Roles are displayed according to their respective sort order in course description area.

          Hi Yu,

          A couple of quick questions....

          Where is the ordering of teachers defined?
          Does the enrolment key reminder reference the first teacher in the list of teachers?

          Hi Ray

          1) Currently you can not sort the users within a role, you can only sort the actual roles.
          2) The first user who has course/update capability but not doanything capability, who is not hidden, sorted by roles order is returned.

          Hi,

          I've just noticed that although users marked as "hidden assignments" are hidden from students in coiurse listings and participant lists, they still appear to students in the online users block.

          fixed in 1.8 and HEAD. Users with hidden assignment at course or higher context will not be shown to users with no viewhiddenassignment capability.
