You may want to invite someone to create new courses and edit all the courses in your account, but you'd prefer they didn't have access to your Account Settings or your account-wide Community. The Library Editor role is perfect for giving account-wide course editing access without giving complete admin access.

What is a Library Editor?

Library Editors can create new courses and Cohorts and edit all the courses in your Library. They can also access the Course settings and the Cohort settings (includes commerce settings). However, they don't have access to the Account Dashboard or Account Settings or your account-wide member Community.

To personally teach a Cohort, the Library Editor should enroll himself in that Cohort as a teacher. This ensures that they receive notifications from the course and they are displayed to learners as the teacher.

💡 Tip: Your school will need to be activated on one of our pricing plans before you can invite others to join. Library Editors count as staff members on your billing plan. Learn more here.
