Enroll Teaching Assistants

At this time, anyone who is enrolled in a course in Drexel Learn as an Instructor has the ability to add Teaching Assistants, Course Builders, and Graders using the Manage Users tool found under the Course Tools section.


Teaching Assistants (TAs): TAs have the same rights in a course as instructors with two exceptions: TAs are not listed as instructors, and TAs do not have permission to add users to the course.

Course Builders: Course builders have full editing rights to the course, but cannot grade student work or view the Grade Center.

Graders: Graders cannot modify course content, but have full rights to the Grade Center and can grade student work.
