How do I add co-instructors to a course?

Follow

If you co-teach your class, work with a TA or paraprofessional on a regular basis, or want to give administrative access to a student-teacher, you may consider adding one or more additional course admins to your course.

To do this, the person must first be enrolled as a member of your course and their account must be an instructor or faculty account. If you are an Enterprise user, check with your system administrator about the best way to enroll this person into your course. 

The course administrators of a Schoology 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 instructors to a course with an Access Code (Basic users)

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

  1. Give the instructor the Course Access Code for the course.
  2. If the instructor does not yet have an account, ask the instructor to navigate to www.schoology.com and follow these instructions to sign up for an Instructor account.
  3. Once the instructor has a Schoology account, they can click Courses in the top menu, select My Courses, click Join a Course, and enter the thirteen-digit Course Access Code from your course.

  4. Once the instructor joins your course, navigate to Members in your course.
  5. From the gear to the right of the instructor's name, select Make Admin. This person will now have a shield icon to the right of their name in the Members list, indicating that they now have the ability to administer the course.

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

Add instructors to a course with Add Members (Enterprise only)

Enterprise instructors have the ability to add members directly form the course using the Add Members option: 

  1. Select Members from the left menu of the course.
  2. Click Add Members.
  3. Select the instructor(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 instructor's name and select the option Make Admin. This person will now have a shield icon to the right of their name in the Members list, indicating that they now have the ability to administer the course.

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