Courseware on a Multi-Site, Multi-Network, MULTIBLOG install

    First off, thank you many times over for creating such wonderful plugins and providing unwavering support of them. I have an interesting configuration problem and I tried hunting an answer in the forums (and else where) and have come up short. I am using ScholarPress Courseware 0.9.2 (SP) on the latest revision of BuddyPress (5213) (BP). Here is the situation, I needed to have two separate social-networks, one for faculty who would be using SP to create their courses, and the other for the students. So I followed the instructions on this site:
    http://wpmututorials.com/news/new-features/multiple-buddypress-social-networks/

    and using the WP Multi Network and BP multi-network plugins I succeeded in creating my discrete social-networks with a shared user base. What I need to do now is have the SP groups from the Faculty social-network show up in the Student social-network so that they can join and interact with the Faculty created courses. I understand that SP needs to be setup on the Student’s side so that they can interact with the SP groups from the Faculty site. I have done this also. And, if possible, I would like to accomplish this without having all of the social-network jazz from the students clouding the Faculty network.

    So in short: Is there a way to share the SP groups from one BP-SP install with another BP-SP network and edit them?

    I think it would be much easier to create different groups inside of the same network. You can create a hidden group for the faculty and a hidden group for the students and a third group for both with the courses in it (or more groups for both with more courses). One SP course is always inside of one group.
    Additional yu can use the different networks for interactions between students and so on. But why?

    @wdfee Thanks, that’s not a bad idea. I’ll have to try it out and see if it still affords me the freedom I wanted from the two network approach. I initially went the route of a separate network for the students so that they might have a full blown social-network with the freedom to make their own groups and what-not without it interfering with the administration of courses.

    Agree with @wdfee !
    It looks like you are missing the whole idea of groups and networks here and trying to complicate things…
