Assign teacher to course

Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 1.9. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Assign teacher to course.

Once a course is created by an administrator or course creator, a user should be assigned the role of teacher for the course. Otherwise, administrators or course creators are the only ones who can edit a course.

To assign a teacher to a course, click on the course title from the main Moodle page.


Find the admin block inside this course (default is the lower, left-hand side) and choose the "Assign roles" option.


When the "Assign roles" page loads, choose the teacher link from the list.

assignroleteacherhighlighted.png On "Assign roles" page, there are two lists separated by two arrows. The left-hand list displays the current users assigned to this role (teacher in this case) and the right-hand list displays the available users. Highlight the users on the right-hand list that will be assigned the role of teacher. Next click the arrow pointing to the left.


Whoever is in the left-hand list is now a teacher for this particular course. In the example below, we have added Teacher Demo and Martin Dougiamas as teachers.


To remove a user from a teacher role, highlight the teacher on the left hand list and click on the right arrow button.
