How do I add admin or teachers to a course?

The course administrators (teachers) of a course have access to view and manage materials in the course. A course section can have as many administrators as needed. Administrators of the course will see course Updates populate their Recent Activity feed. They can also receive menu and email notifications for the course.

Note: Only the course creator can add sections to the course – other course administrators can not add sections.

For example: User A creates Course 1: Section 1. User A then adds User B as an admin for Section 1. User A can make changes to Course 1 and Section 1, but User B can only make changes to Section 1, not Course 1.

 Add new teachers to a course


If you'd like to add a teacher who doesn't yet have a Schoology account, follow these steps:

  1. Give the teacher the Course Access Code for the course.
  2. Ask the teacher to navigate to app.schoology.com and click on the Sign Up button.
  3. The teacher should select the Instructor button to create an Instructor account.
  4. Once the teacher creates a Schoology account, he or she will find the option to Join courses using an access code from the Courses area on the top menu.
  5. Once the teacher joins your course, navigate to the Members area on the left menu of your course page.
  6. From the gear to the right of the teacher's name, select the option to Make Admin.

Note: If the option to Make Admin does not appear for the teacher, it's possible that the teacher created a Student account on Schoology. The teacher can delete their student account and create a new Instructor account.

 

Add existing teachers to a course


If the teacher you'd like to add to your course already has a Schoology account, follow these steps:

  1. Give the teacher the Course Access Code for the course.
  2. The teacher can join your course by clicking on the option to Join courses from the Courses area on the top menu.
  3. Once the teacher joins your course, navigate to the Members area on the left menu of your course page.
  4. From the gear to the right of the teacher's name, select the option to Make Admin.

As an alternative, 

  1. Select the Members tab in the left menu.
  2. Click on the Add Members button.
  3. Select the teacher(s) you'd like to enroll into the course. You will see a selected count in the upper right corner. You can also search or browse for each user without affecting previously selected members.
  4. Click Add Members.
  5. In the Members area, click the gear to the right of the teacher's name and select the option to Make Admin.

Note: Depending on the settings in place at your school, you may not see the option to add additional teachers to your course. If you're not able to add teachers to your course, please contact a System Administrator for further assistance. System Administrator and Schoology Support information is located in the Help Center area.
