I am the Technology Director for a small school, and as part of my role I also teach classes. As a director, my role requires admin access to Schoology, so I have a single account that should have administrator access for the "district" (we are a private school, and therefore a district of one school) and also has me as an instructor to a few courses.
Both times that I have logged into Schoology with my admin-level account to edit my course, on the subsequent login my account is stripped of admin rights (to a normal instructor account level). Another administrator then restored my admin rights only for this process to repeat the next time I tried to edit my courses.
I am not certain that editing my course is the cause of the loss of admin rights, but I can't think of any other variables that would be relevant.
When the school district first began using Schoology, they were advised that anyone who wanted to have admin rights to Schoology AND teach a course should make two accounts. Is this still the case, or should it be possible for an admin to reliably run courses?
