How do I add someone as an Institution Admin?

There are 3 roles available within an institution portal (Note: these are different to the roles within a course):

  • Admin
  • Staff
  • Student

An Institution Admin:

  • Can access Institution Settings 
  • Has full edit privileges within the portal 

An Institution Staff member:

  • Can only access Completion Stats in the Institution Settings
  • Has no edit privileges within the portal
  • This role is more for managing your institution people list, and knowing who is a student and who is a staff member

A Student:

  • Cannot access Institution Settings
  • Has no edit privileges within the portal

To add someone as an Institution Admin, you first need to add them to the portal as you would a student (this is on our feature improvements list!), by following the instructions here.

Once you have invited them to the institution and they have accepted the invitation, follow the steps below.
