Granting Permissions in Design View

Edit Course Access Overview

You may grant permissions to administer, edit, and even change ownership of a course in the Designer view. Here are the roles, and their respective levels of access:

Owners can edit/publish the course and add other administrators (or Admins and Editors). 

Admins can edit/publish the course and add editors.

Editors can only edit the course.

Course access is a dynamic setting that can be modified at any time. To request a change to the permissions of a course, send an email to the current course owner with a description of the permissions level you require.

Viewing Current Permissions

Changing the Owner

1. To change the owner of the course, click inside of the white text box underneath the Owner label and begin typing the name of an individual you wish to change ownership to.

- NOTE: If you are the current owner of a course and you change the owner to another individual, you will no longer have design access to the course unless you are also listed as an Admin or as an Editor. There can only be one Owner of a course but there can be multiple course Admins and Editors.
