Add a Person into a Course [Faculty]


Adding another teacher to your course is a way to share ideas, collaborate with peers, and help improve the overall quality of your online learning materials. You can also add users to your course for other reasons such as helping with grading (GTA) or to facilitate ADA accommodations (interpreter).

[Warning: You should discourage manually adding students into your academic course. Students are enrolled when they register for your course in Bengal Web.]

Understand the different roles

  • Teacher - This role has full editing rights and will be listed as the teacher in the course for students. (This role is given to personnel who are listed as the instructor of record in BengalWeb.)

  • Unlisted Teacher - This is a teacher who has access like a regular teacher with full-editing rights, but will not be listed as a teacher in the course for students.

  • Non-Editing Teacher - Non-editing teachers can teach in courses and grade students in activities and the gradebook, but do not have permission to add, remove, or edit course materials.

  • Student - You can use this role to grant access to course materials to a non-registered user. Users in this role will have the same privileges as registered students.

  • Student with Incomplete - You can assign this role to students the need access to the course outside of the regular term limit.
