How do I add another course administrator to my course?

Anyone who creates a course is automatically set as an administrator, or admin, of that course. However, a course may need a number of administrators. 

In order to add someone as an administrator in your course, make sure they first have a registered OpenLearning account. If they don't, they can register here. You will also need to assign them a Institution staff or Institution admin role.

Note: If you are on a personal plan, you are limited to one administrator per course.

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.
