Add class page tools (assess., discussions, etc.) to group pages, or allow teachers to enroll in classes

It would be a great option for professional development, training, etc. if teachers could enroll in a class (as a student), or certain class page tools like graded discussions and assessments, could be added to group pages.  We currently have divisional group pages (Lower and Middle School) for teachers that are used for communication and sharing resources.  The ability to facilitate an online discussion or take a poll would be great additions.  Plus, they'd give teachers an opportunity to see how those tools could be used from a different perspective.

    We would like to do this as well, particularly now that we have had to move to hybrid classes (#lifewithCOVID). We want to be able to give a full simulation of what it would be like for students, including assignments and assessments for teachers taking the training class.

    We created an advisory group in just one division and then loaded teachers in as advisors. It has worked really well. We use the topics pages as our units of study.

    No, I want the whole thing. What better way to teach teachers how to best use the LMS than to make them experience it as a student. I want to be able to enroll teachers in classes, give and track assignments, graded discussions...everything.
