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 editors will need to create a Teacher enrollment in each cohort 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 cohort as the Teacher, paste the Teacher invitation link into a new browser tab while logged in and you will be automatically enrolled. 

What's the difference between moderators and teachers? 

  • Moderators can take the course as a learner while in "Learn" mode and teach while in "Teach" mode. They do not have access to "Design" mode.

  • Teachers do not have "Learn" mode, but they can preview the course as a learner. They have access to the same "Teach" mode as moderators. They can additionally switch to "Design" mode and edit the path for their cohort only by adding, deleting, and reorganizing steps and lessons.

  • Teachers who want to take the same course they are teaching will need to use a separate learner account under a different email address in order to track their progress.
