Yes. Instructors may be enrolled as Course Masters or Instructors. See below for definitions of those terms.

For more information on adding instructors please read How can I enroll a user in the course as an instructor or TA?.

What is a "course master?"

A course master enrollment is an enrollment that has full access and editing rights to the course. This includes the following abilities:

  • Editing content
  • Editing assignment deadlines
  • Editing the roster
  • Editing assignment scores
  • Uploading files
  • Viewing students' work on assignments
  • Viewing instructor supplements (if provided)
  • Adding instructors
  • Adding students

In addition, only course masters can view and set the access and editing privileges of instructors.

By default, the creator of a course is a course master.

What is an "instructor?"

An instructor enrollment can have its access and editing privileges set by a course master. The most limited capacity an instructor enrollment can have is the following:

  • Has the ability to view an assignment and its answers prior to the start date of the assignment
  • Can view the entire class grade book
  • Can view but not edit the Global Course Settings page
  • Can view but not edit the Manage Roster view

The maximum capacity an instructor enrollment can have is almost that of a course master. The only exception is that an instructor can never view or change the access levels of other instructors.

What is the "Instructor Enrollments" table?

The Instructor Enrollments table contains a full listing of all the course masters and instructors in the course. You can see this table by clicking Manage Roster under Instructor Links.
