Other frequently asked questions about roles

I'm an admin or editor. Why can't I...(teach a new course? take a course as a learner?) 

  • Admins and library editors will need to create a Teacher enrollment in each Group in order to have it listed under their Teach tab, receive notifications from the class, and be listed as a teacher at the top of the Path. 
  • If you need to add yourself to a class as the Teacher, paste the Teacher invitation link into a new browser tab while logged in and you will be automatically enrolled. 
  • If an admin or library editor would like to additionally take a course as a learner or as a moderator, he will need to set up a separate learner account under a different email. Otherwise, their role will override learner settings. 

What's the difference between moderators and teachers? 

  • Moderators are unique in that they can take the course as a learner while in "Learn" mode and teach while in "Teach" mode.
  • Teachers do not have "Learn" mode, but they do have a learner preview mode. They can view, but not take the course as a learner. 
  • Teachers who want to take the same course they are teaching will need to use a separate learner account under a different email.
