How do I add someone as an Institution Admin?


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

  • Administrator
  • Staff
  • Learner

An Institution Administrator:

  • Can access Institution Settings which enables you to make changes to anything related to your portal.
  • Has full edit privileges within the portal.
  • Comes with an educator license privilege to create courses under the portal.

An Institution Staff member:

  • Cannot access Institution Settings.
  • Has no edit privileges within the portal.
  • Has edit privileges to the course they have been assigned as a course admin/creator.
  • Comes with an educator license privilege to create courses under the portal.
  • Is automatically set as a course administrator for courses this role creates.
  • This role is for managing people at the course level (additional course administrators, facilitators, and learners).

A Learner:

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