How do I add someone as Staff to my course and manage their roles?

 Before you begin, please note:

Step 1

Go to Course Setup > Roles.


Step 2


To add users to your staff list you can type in their full name, profile name or email.

Ideally, to ensure you are adding the right account (some users have multiple accounts or there are might be several users with the same name) you will do this by typing in their email.

If you type in their name or profile name and:

  • your course is under an institution, the search will only look through people who are members of that institution.
  • your course is not under an institution, the search will look through everyone on the platform who has a public account (i.e. a publicly viewable profile). 


Once a staff member has been added to the staff list, you can assign their additional roles (facilitate, assess, designs assessment) by ticking the appropriate box.

Step 3

If you have multiple classes, you will need to add the staff member to the specific class they will be facilitating.

Click Edit to bring up the edit classes modal. 

Using this modal, you can add and remove classes for this user. Type the name of an existing class into the text box and select one of the auto-completed options to add the class for this user.


Close the modal once finished. 

Step 4

Refresh the page for the changes to take effect.
