Another issue regarding student repos. I previously mentioned the problem of empty repositories when they clone and the workaround I use.
Now I have a problem where they can’t see their tasks that I set them in GitHub Classroom in GitHub Desktop anymore (only in the GitHub web interface). They used to be able to. I first thought it might be an issue with our firewall, which can play up, but my university’s support says it works for them so they won’t/can’t help.
First students got authentication failed messages even though their usernames and passwords were correct.
Later some got API error messages.
Does anyone here have experience with this? These are business students using R for statistics, if possible I want to use GitHub Desktop as they aren’t used to the command line - plus it used to work for them…
