How do I add admins to my course?

Anyone who creates a course is automatically set as an administrator, or admin, of that course. However, a course can have a number of admins. 

In order to add someone as an admin in your course, make sure they first have a registered OpenLearning account. If they don't, they can register here.

They will also need to have a paid Educator Account to maintain their admin access beyond the 30-day free trial period.

Step 1:

Go to Course Setup > Advanced


Step 2:

Click where it says "Add a new administrator..." and it will become a text box.



Step 3:

Begin typing the email address or username of the person you would like to add. Once the correct user appears in the list, click on their name to add them as an admin.


To remove an admin:

Step 1:

Simply click on the red X to the right of their name.
