Multiple teachers & classes

I’ve been using Classroom this year with all of my classes. Finally talked a co-teacher into giving it a try this semester. But when he created his classes they’re showing up in my list, and my classes show up in his list. Plus, we’re both able to create assignments in each other’s courses.

Is this normal, or did we miss a setting somewhere?

This happens when the GitHub Classrooms are using the same Github organization. By default, each GitHub Classroom expects to be connected to a unique organization. What you and your colleague are seeing are all the classrooms connected to your shared organization.

At my institute, we do this on purpose. Seeing others’ classrooms is slightly irksome but is no match for the bother of creating and requesting authorization for new organizations each semester. There are some issues with this setup, though, which are highlighted in this thread.
