      Description

      A editing teacher is able to change his course settings, thus it is also able to change his course from "available" to "unavailable to students". Setting the course to "unavailable to studentes" a teacher can't enter again in the same course since the teacher's original role does not allow teacher to view hidden courses, even if they are editing teacher in the course itslef.

      Of course a very simple workaround is give again the capabiity to editing teacher, but it seems inconsistent to allow teacher to change course availability when they are not allowed to see hidden courses by default.

      Possible solution:
      1. change the Teacher legacy role, enabling the view hidden courses by default (preferred, I think)
      2. disallow teachers to change course availability to students.
