Teacher Role permission to view-only Course Materials of other teachers


We would like to allow any of our teachers the permission to view any other teacher's course materials in any course.  Currently, the only way we are able to accomplish this is to grant the Teacher Role the Administer Courses permission.  This is a potential problem as this also grants Edit capabilities to the Teacher Role for all courses.

We would like to have a View-Only permission set up within the Courses Permissions in order to allow any teacher to "see" how other teachers are setting up and organizing their Course Materials.

    The time has come!

    I am happy to let you know that Section Override Roles is now available in Schoology! With this new feature, you can provide more granular access to Course Management features such as the gradebook and attendance. 

    This feature requires that your school's System Administrator enables Section Override Roles for your school. Please direct your System Administrator to this Help Article for full details:

    Thank you all for your support for this feature and your patience!

    I'll add to that request.  I write my lesson plans as events in my calendar, and I'd like the student-teacher I'm supervising to be able to see those events.  I've added her to my course, so she sees everything the students see and therefore knows what assignments I'm giving on each day, but she can't tell what I'm planning to do in class each day.

    This needs to be an enrollment option, not a role.  That way you could add visitors (whether school administrators, substitute teachers, peer members of a PLC, etc) to a course without needing to enroll them as students (in which case their feed will fill with overdue notices) or full admins (in which case, in addition to them being able to mess with your stuff, they also have notifications about your ungraded assignments added to theirs).
